HomemakerPresented by Hectik Theatre, The Homemaker is a one-woman cabaret created and performed by Laura Anne Harris (pictured).

Apparently based on family folklore related to a great aunt, it recounts the story of a French-Canadian woman from Albertville, SK named Janette Pettitpas and her struggle to combat a drinking problem while also fulfilling her duties as a wife and homemaker in the pre-feminist era. A dollop of Catholic guilt gets thrown into the mix as well.

The Homemaker¬†premiered at the 2013 Toronto Fringe Festival last summer. The cabaret will be presented at New Dance Horizons’s performance space at 2207 Harvey St. ¬†from May 7-10 at 8 p.m. Tickets are adults $25 and students $15, and more information can be found at Hectik’s website.
