  • evalynparry.com / Obaaberima take Best Production at Dora Awards!
    to have the PRODUCTION acknowledged as a whole This was a profoundly collaborative project with so many gifted and talented creative and technical contributors who gave so much of themselves to create it Thank you Brendan Healy my incredible friend and colleague Artistic Director at Buddies for championing this show and giving us the time and resources need to fully develop a brand new show from a emerging playwright If there is anything that I have learned over the last decade as a theatre artist dedicated to the creation of new work it is that in order to make GOOD work you need a lot of time and it must go through a process of multiple stages of development I learned that first from my work at the Theatre Centre under the vision of Franco Boni where we created Breakfast with Brendan and the Aunties and I am struck by that again now Obaaberima benefitted from a rigorous development process and I wish every new show could have these kind of resources Thank you to the Dora Jury for your acknowledgment of our production I believe Obaaberima is an important new work and hope it will return to be seen

  • evalynparry.com / A Letter From Annie Londonderry’s Granddaughter
    1895 Londonderry a few months after I released the SPIN CD in 2011 What she told me in her letter moved me deeply and eventually I adapted her words to create this song that now is part of the ending of the show For me the most amazing part of receiving this letter was how it brought SPIN full circle When I first discovered Annie Londonderry s story I was so inspired and blown away by it I wrote my song The Balled of Annie Londonderry which in turn became one of the building blocks of my show SPIN Receiving this letter made me reframe my own understanding of who Annie was and at the same time it gave me a rare and profound moment of understanding and gratitude for how art can connect us across time and culture and place and how it can sometimes miraculously change our own understandings of our own stories I would like to thank Mary Goldiner for allowing me to use the words from her beautiful letter and I am so pleased to be able to put this new song into the world the wheel turning another revolution in the amazing cycle of creative
