In March 2019, Alley Theatre produced Judith Fair, a progressive variety show featuring a mix of burlesque, dance, comedy, sketch, theatre and music. The event functioned as a call to action, a night of creativity and education and as a celebration for International Women’s Day. The event took place at the Vancouver Eastside Cultural Centre on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tseil-Waututh nations.

Thanks to the organizers, crew and all the performers… What a beautiful blend of what Vancouver women performers have to offer. Thanks for all you do.
