- Short-listed, Governor General's Literary Award for Drama 2010
Two characters and two monologues, tied together across time and place, their stories a candid pursuit of hope and empathy, even in the face of an unbelievably cruel world. Judith Thompson's Such Creatures portrays her raw style of storytelling and showcases her incessant quest to understand the dark, neglected, and troubling corners of society. Both unbelievably cruel and unbelievably human, Such Creatures is an awe-inspiring portrayal of the breadth of the human spirit.
"Such Creatures confronts audiences with pain, rage, fear and unimaginable choices. True to form, Thompson handles the harshest realities of human existence with sensitivity, artistry and always hope."- Plank Magazine
"Such Creatures is certainly audacious, drawing parallels between Auschwitz and the streets of contemporary Toronto, while throwing ideas about homelessness and sexual orientation into the mix."- Toronto Star
