About the Show

Expect Theatre and CBC Podcasts present a new season of PLAYME, the podcast that transforms Canadian plays into audio dramas. Each play will be recorded in three episodes, followed by another episode that features an interview with the respective playwright. All four episodes for each work will be released at once.

The new season includes the following plays:

  • Prairie Nurse by Dora Mavor Moore Award-nominee Marie Beath Badian: two Filipino nurses immigrate to the snow-covered prairies in the 1960s
  • Between Breaths by Governor General Award-winner and Newfoundland-based playwright Robert Chafe: the final moments of the “Whaleman” of Newfoundland as he reflects on a life dedicated to rescuing trapped whales 
  • What A Young Wife Ought To Know by Dora Award and Trillium Book Award-winner Hannah Moscovitch: a young wife’s dilemma surrounding love, sex and fertility in the 1920s in Ottawa
  • The Fish Eyes Trilogy by Dora Award-winner Anita Majumdar: a teen’s fury about consent, cultural appropriation and colonialism in Port Moody, B.C.
  • Huff by award-winning writer Cliff Cardinal: an unflinching look at brothers on a reserve who struggle with solvent abuse and suicide
