EMSB students to perform in Daughters of the Mile End

Sisters Sienna Marie and Arianna Rose Falato
Montreal - Thursday, March 14, 2019

Three students from the English Montreal School Board will be performing in the Labyrinth Stage Productions presentation called  Daughters of Mile End (April 3 to 6 ) at the DB Clarke Theatre (1455 de Maisonneuve Blvd. West)   of Concordia University.

Sisters Sienna Marie and Arianna Rose Falato  from Dante Elementary School in St. Léonard and Avah Pennefather from Edinburgh   School in Montreal West are members of the cast. Directors Claudia Litvak Polachek and Pearl Lottner Rothenberg are children of Jewish immigrants from two very different parts of the world, who came to Montreal under very different circumstances. Inspired by true stories, this is a Jewish Montreal-centric creation.  

The play is about four Mile End girls and the diverse paths their lives take as they grow into adulthood and beyond. The all-female multi-generational cast of 13 is under the direction of Rachelle Glait, with set and costume designs by the multi-award winning John Dinning and Louise Bourret respectively.

With humour, poignancy, and insight, Daughters of Mile End illustrates that despite traumatic family histories, the girls’ shared childhood memories and experiences lead them to a better understanding of their mothers—and themselves—enabling them to live and love more fully.
