A Young Lady's Guide to Vivisection

Vivisection: (from Latin vivus, "alive" and sectio, "cutting").

Grave-robbing! Cat dissections! Petticoats! Based on a bizarrely true story, this gruesome dramedy follows the Queen’s University medical class of 1884 as they adjust to the first lady students, new scientific ideas, and the marvelously mad world of Victorian medicine.

NOW Magazine - "This vividly titled play explores the early days of co-ed medical training and the illusion of progress. In a series of well written vignettes by director Keavy Lynch and the company, the struggles of women and men wanting to become doctors in mid-nineteenth century Ontario are explored, with both silly and macabre humour."

Mooney on Theatre- "Overall, A Young Lady’s Guide To Vivisection is a play that ought to tour the country. It stands as a testament to how far we’ve come in terms of how we view women’s roles in society as well as how far we have left to go"

Charlebois Post - "Empty Box Theatre have chosen a unique subject to bring to the Fringe"   "academically intriguing – the company has done its research"

Life With More Cowbell Blog - "A highly entertaining and informative look at female medical students taking part in the first co-ed program at Queen’s University. Energetic, fun ensemble cast – love the cross-casting..."
