A Day in the Life of Myrtle is the story of an extraordinarily enthusiastic and creative girl, Myrtle, who isn’t like everyone else. Struggling to find her voice she is rejected by her peers and seen as needing to be “fixed” by the adults. Seven-year-old Myrtle flees this rejection by escaping into the adventurous world of her imagination where she is able to be powerful and carefree. In the end Myrtle finds a path to true friendship and inner strength when her creativity finds an appropriate outlet in the physical world.

Directed by the Fool’s Artist Director Dean Bareham and performed by Judith Mendelsohn this original Canadian production was inspired by Judith’s own childhood experiences and explores themes of Individuality, equality, empathy, community, creativity and courage. The story of what it means to be different in a world that values the familiar.
