Ever woken up beside a stranger? What if it was planned that way? shameless hussy presents the acclaimed one-woman, 16 character, theatrical tour de force DISSOLVE by Meghan Gardiner. At turns hilarious and heartbreaking, DISSOLVE confronts the topic of drink spiking and drug facilitated sexual assault. Responding to interest from schools and educators, this play has been touring to colleges, universities and high schools throughout North America. DISSOLVE stars Emmelia Gordon who earned the 2014 Jessie Richardson award "Outstanding Actress" for this role. 





The play follows a young girl on a night out and the people she encounters, with the actress morphing fluidly between a flurry of 14 characters, both comedic and compelling. Designed to provoke thought and dialogue about sexual consent, DISSOLVE challenges us to change our beliefs and behaviour surrounding alcohol, drugs and sexual assault. DISSOLVE proposes to transform potential bystanders into ‘upstanders.’


"Spot-on satire… the characters funny and recognizable … a rewarding show." Vancouver Sun

"In 25 as an educator I've never seen a more powerful presentation. There’s a tremendous need for this in schools today." - Jay Prepchuk, Counseling Head, Handsworth Secondary


Director Renee Iaci leads the creative team including our Artistic Associates Lana Krause (Costume Design), and Stephen Bulat (Sound Design & Stage Manager), with Matthew Norman (Scenography) and Stephen Heatley (Directorial Mentor). With a mandate of "telling provocative stories about women to inspire the hand that rocks the cradle to rock the world" shameless hussy puts herstory to the forefront. We bring work that provokes a deeper understanding of women's past, present and potential, onto stages across Canada and the US. www.shamelesshussy.com

DISSOLVE is available for touring, it's a wake-up call that you need to consider bringing to your school or local theatre. The play is suitable for adult and young adults alike. It is especially relevant for youth of an age to enjoy the freedom and independence that comes with socializing with friends and classmates.
