Alien Creature: A Visitation from Gwendolyn MacEwen 
By Linda Griffiths
Directed by Oriana Di Nucci 

Alien Creature is a magical dialogue with the audience. It is a celebration of the creative spirit and reflects on a world that may have lost the ability to see the magic in poetry and art. Gwendolyn MacEwen was a Toronto poet, who in limbo, takes the stage, one last time, to tell her darkly comedic story. She is a magic woman, and her power is poetry.
