About the Play:

The Lady Smith is a full-length dramatic comedy by Andrew Moodie. What happens when the "other woman" becomes your roommate? What happens when she starts to confide in you about her affair? Rather than confront her husband when she discovers he is being unfaithful, a blues singer moves in with the "other woman."

The Lady Smith is a tale of betrayal and revenge, set in the Black community of Toronto's Bloor and Bathurst neighbourhood, which challenges the distance between deception and redemption. When Sylvia answers a room for rent ad and moves in, her roomies do not realize she's the wife of the married man one is having an affair with. Andrew Moodie's dark and sexy comedy takes Mamie Smith, the first person to record a blues song, as the icon who anchors the work and helps Sylvia face her own blues.

The Lady Smith premiered in 2000 at Theatre Passe Muraille in Toronto. It was then remounted in Montreal.

Cast: 3 female, 1 male
