The Independent Aunties are a Toronto-based theatre company founded by Evalyn Parry, Anna Chatterton and Karin Randoja.
Much of our work delves into women’s societal roles, constraints and obsessions, both historically and contemporarily. We strive to create theatre that is playful, witty, physically stylish and wildly imaginative; surprising, highly entertaining theatre, with equal interplay between word and movement, social critique and cultural satire. We are wordsmiths, with a penchant for satire and outrageous humour. We have written plays entirely in rhyme, turned metaphors into a literal reality on stage and are always looking at the underbelly, the flip-side and the large possibilities inherent in the suspension of disbelief in the theatre.
Over our fifteen years together as a company, we have created six highly acclaimed, original performances: Clean Irene & Dirty Maxine; Frances, Mathilda and Tea; The Mysterious Shorts; Robbers’ Daughters; Breakfast and Gertrude and Alice.
Our beloved collaborators have included: Brendan Healy, Sherri Hay, Trevor Schwellnus, Helen Yung, Randi Helmers, Michelle Ramsy, Christina Cicko, Claire Calnan, Alisha Stranges among others.
