Country Song premiered at Halifax’s Queer Acts Theatre Festival, toured to The Dublin International Gay Theatre Festival, and opened for singer/songwriter Rae Spoon. It’s award winning playwright Lee-Ann Poole’s love letter to country music. From sharing her own stabs at the genre to stories of her father, Country Song conquers some fears and re-imagines who you can be.

“Poole had the audience eating from her hands from the first strum of her guitar” -The Coast 

“spellbinds audiences” -Chronicle Herald

Written and performed by Lee-Anne Poole, Directed by Dustin Harvey
