The process of adaptation is a complex one. When a writer is adapting his or her own work, it can be all that much more complicated. But Toronto author Priscila Uppal is experienced in moving between genres, having made her mark in poetry and non-fiction. With the success of her memoir, Projection (Thomas Allen), she is now moving to the stage, adapting the book into a play for Factory Theatre called 6 Essential Questions. The play, like the book, follows the journey of a woman searching for her runaway mother in Brazil.
The play runs from March 1-30, 2014. More information can be found on the Factory Theatre website.
