Epic Women's Directing Project
4th Line Theatre’s newest project is its Epic Women’s Directing Project which will focus on giving female Canadian directors the opportunity to train and work in the company’s unique community-based model. According to Equity In Theatre’s website “in terms of artistic directors, directors and playwrights, women in Canada's professional theatre industry have not yet surpassed the 35% employment marker.”
Over the next five years, 4th Line will make it a priority to hire and train emerging and established Canadian women directors and give them the opportunity to direct in the outdoor, epic, large cast milieu which 4th Line has created over the past 25 seasons. Working under Managing Artistic Director Kim Blackwell and Founder and Creative Director Robert Winslow, women directors will be given the chance to explore epic historical plays in the company’s farm theatre space.
