What is the Book of Judith?

The Book of Judith, created by Michael Rubenfeld and Sarah Garton Stanley, is a musical play about a self-annointed preacher man who is passionately driven to change the lives of others. After a chance meeting with a quadriplegic woman named Judith Snow, theatre artist Matthew Goldberg believes he has “seen the light”. With the help of his director, Shauna Coupland, and her best friend, disabled artist, Pippa McLaren, Matthew has managed to coral a fully integrated group of choristers with and without disability, to help him tell, for the first time, his inspirational, maniacal and deeply suspect tale of Judith Snow. The Book of Judith takes us from innocence to ignorance and through to the other side – a truer place of transformation.

The Book of Judith stars Michael Rubenfeld and features Sarah Garton Stanley, Judith Snow and a revolving cast comprised of local members of the community the work is performed in. It is directed by Sarah Garton Stanley.

3 shows left!


416.534.9261 to PRE-BOOK. or Just SHOW UP AT THE TENT!

Today at 2:30 and 8:30. Tomorrow at 11:00am.

Last night was a special night. We were almost sold out, and the rain made the show really magical. A very overwhelming standing ovation, and an unbelievable amount of generousity from the audience. There were a bunch of people in the audience who have known Judith, and a few with who shared stories of Judith working with their own children who have/had disabilities. Another woman shared her story about wanting to make theatre, but didn't know how. The show inspired her own questions, and she is now going to begin her own pursuit of answering her very large, complex questions.

I love this show. Love it. I love that others are loving it so much. I love that it is both moving people and inspiring people.

I hope to see you at the theatre sometime today or tomorrow.
