Amy (f), 38, lawyer.
“Amy, a 38 year old lawyer, is unexpectedly faced with the possibility of losing her oldest friend, Barbara, a stay-at-home mother of three, over something as seemingly trivial as Amy's attitude towards a younger woman at work. Trying to figure out what has gone wrong, Amy is forced to confront some difficult truths about the price of her success.

• "In 1972 I co-founded the Wakefield Tricycle Company in London, England with Ken Chubb. In 1978 I wrote 'The Adventures of Super Granny and the Kid' for young audiences and have been on the playwrighting adventure ever since. In 1980 the Wakefield Tricycle Company opened the Tricycle Theatre, a 220 seat theatre that continues to produce plays on the Kilburn High Road in London. In 2006 the theatre received a Special Award for its pioneering political work at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards. In 1985, Ken and I returned to Canada. In Toronto in 1989, after working on a Popular Theatre project inspired by the stories of immigrant women who work in the garment industry, I joined with long time friend and collaborator, Lib Spry, and musician, Arlene Mantle to found Straight Stitching Productions. Since 2000 I have worked with story editor, Ken Chubb, on the development of film and television projects. I was Senior Story Editor on Jozi-H, a 13 part hospital drama co-produced by Inner City Films (Canada) and Morula Pictures (South Africa) which was shown on CBC TV in 2006/07 and SABC3 in 2007. I was the Executive Director of the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour from 1988-2005."—Shirley Barrie - Playwright and producer, http://www3.sympatico.ca/sbarrie.kchubb/plays/index.htm, accessed June 10, 2008.
