Administrative history

Hecate's Players was a feminist theatre collective which performed reader's theatre to raise awareness of women's issues. Founded in November 1983, the collective consisted of many members. Although the collective's roster varied throughout its existence, and not all of the following individuals were members at the same time, Amanda LaRougetel, Lisa Walters, Denise Burrell, Shiobhan Avery, Kim Nelson, Elizabeth Lunney, Ann McGrath, Kathryn Ivany, and Sandy MacDonald were members of the collective. The members of the collective met at the University of Alberta and performed for a number of venues including the United Church Presbytery meeting, International Women's Day events, Alberta Status of Women's Action Committee events, and the 1985 Fringe Festival. The group survived many changes, including absences of group members as they pursued educational opportunities elsewhere. The group dissolved at the end of 1987 when too many of the core group left for work or school elsewhere.

Custodial history

Kathryn Ivany was a member of Hecate's Players.
