A Window on the SoulO puts everyone in the spotlight! For the duration of the festival, A Window on the Soulo will feature surprise appearances from festival performers along with SoulOTheatre graduates and students who all will take turns sitting for an hour at a time, writing in the store front, Queen Street window of the Red Sandcastle Theatre.

Observers and passersby will be invited to fill out and hold up cards to the window asking the artists to answer a specific question or suggest a topic for their writing.  

Precious Chong, whose world premiere of Precious, like the Adjective closes the festival, will be in the window on May 23 from 7pm-8pm, just prior to the Gala Opening of the festival (Chris Gibbs' Antoine Feval).

The other mainstage productions showcasing the mighty art form of the one-person show include the Canadian premiere of Beowulf or Gilgamesh, You Decide! from Charlie Bethel, and showstoppers Goddess from Alex Dallas, Naked Ballerina from Sarah Murphy Dyson, Desperate Church Wives from Diane Johnstone and Cancer Can't Dance Like This from Daniel Stolfi.
