A BIT ABOUT THE COMPANY

Libido Productions was founded in 2010 by York University professor, author and playwright Sheila L. Cavanagh. The Toronto-based theatre company specializes in Queer and Trans- drama with a focus on the psychic complexities of gender and sexuality. Libido Productions is committed to verbatim dialogue and to theatrical research based performances. Its mandate is to produce critical and psychoanalytically nuanced plays that complicate normative ideas about love and loss, hate, identification and desire. Libido Productions are dramatic and politically compelling in the way they grapple with everyday emotions and affect in the socio-cultural landscape. The company’s first production is Queer Bathroom Monologues which was staged as an amateur production at the Toronto Fringe Festival (2011), and will be remounted as Queer Bathroom Stories at this year at Pride!
