This work is the second play written and produced by storyteller and performer Dainty Smith, ''Daughters Of Lilith'' is a story about how Black women survive love, loss, heartbreak, misogynoir and trauma in a deeply anti-Black world. Directed by Ravyn Wngz and featuring a magical multidisciplinary cast of Black women creatives, it is a courageous exploration of love, heartbreak and witchcraft told through dance, movement, oral storytelling, projections and ancestral conjuring.

This play creates an urgently necessary space for Black women to centre their own traumas and joys, speaking to the realities of so many women whose stories rarely ever get to make it onto the Canadian stage.
