Design instructor in the Department of Dramatic Arts receives notice in the Globe and Mail

Published on October 05 2012


Kelly Wolf, sessional instructor for DART 1P97 Introduction to Stagecraft, Production and Design and DART 3F61 Design: Theatrical Design, recently designed the world premiere at Nightwood Theatre in Toronto, Between the Sheets. This "short, sharp new play" is noticed for its brilliant and heart-pounding performance.

Nightwood describes the play: "What begins as an ordinary parent teacher interview unravels into a gripping and raw confrontation between two women on the brink of disaster. One woman is fighting to protect her family. The other is fighting for the family she always wanted. With razor sharp intensity, Mand has crafted a rollercoaster ride of high stakes drama."

Globe Critic Martin Morrow congratulates Kelly for "the perfect character-defining costumes and ... the set, an exact replica of an elementary-school classroom." Her design proposes a scenographic space that gives the feeling of a "boxing ring in director Kelly Thornton’s tightly coiled staging."

The Globe concludes their notice with "If you handed out report cards for shows, Between the Sheets would get straight As."

Congratulations to Kelly!
