A Bit About Georgina Beaty
Georgina Beaty, Toronto-based actor, Co-Artistic Director of Architect Theatre, and graduate of both the University of Alberta and Studio 58, is the driving force behind the one-woman tour-de-force that is Cliff Cardinal’s Stitch. Beaty plays the role of Kylie Grandview, a single mother and porn star whose plight takes center stage. Stitch is “the story of a woman claiming agency in a system that denies her any power,” describes Beaty. “Kylie is a warped ingénue for dark times.”

“The theatre company that I run in B.C. doesn’t do work this raw and visceral… I feel really privileged to be in this kinda crazy world of pornstars, and drug addicts. It’s a great place to be.” – Jovanni Sy
Stitch Director/Dramaturge Sy joins Jessica Lea Fleming for the final gaganoonidiwag podcast of the 2014/2015 season.
