Bitter Rose

Series contains materials that document the genesis of Bitter Rose. Series includes annotated typescript versions of the script, production records, correspondence, photographs, and publicity materials.

Bitter Rose is an original one-act play by Catherine Banks. The play focuses on Rose, a visual artist without a body of work. When Rose's professor husband leaves to meet a female graduate student, she realizes she has betrayed the girl-artist within. The play examines creativity in women artists and what happens to creative women who also take on roles as mother and wife.

Banks started writing the play in 1997, while writing Bone Cage. The play started as a series of monologues called Bitter Rose; Life on a cul de sac. Bitter Rose and Bone Cage were accepted for the Moveable Feast Workshops (run by Playwrights' Atlantic Resource Centre) in Trinity Bay, Newfoundland. Bitter Rose was completed at this workshop with the assistance of Janis Spence.

Bitter Rose was first produced in 1998 at the LSPU Hall in Saint John's, Newfoundland and Labrador as part of the first annual Multi-Disciplinary Festival (billed as Festival "5"), a week-long arts and culture festival. It was directed by Janis Spence and performed by Lois Brown. The play was performed at the same festival in 1999, directed by Michael Chiasson and performed by Amy House. In 2000, it was produced by the Women's Theatre and Creativity Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. LSPU Hall hosted another production in 2004 (directed by Tessa Mendel and performed by Amy House). This production also aired on Bravo! Canada. The script was published by the Playwrights' Guild of Canada in 2005.
