Six Excellent Eda Holmes Plays

Eda Holmes has a ton of excellent shows under her belt in her distinguished career as a director. As associate director of the Shaw Festival, she’s directed two shows this season: Mrs. Warren’s Profession, by Shaw himself, and Oscar Wilde’s A Woman of No Importance. 

But her career is diverse and vibrant outside of the Shaw Festival, too. She’s directed a large number of plays in Toronto, and won the 2015 Dora Award for Tom at the Farm. Eda often draws on her background as a dancer in her approach to her work, as she explains to Catherine Kustanczy in this month’s Spotlight feature.

Here are six of Eda Holmes’ most memorable plays.
