Jasmine has engaged with audiences across Canada in repertory festivals, independent theatres, site-specific spaces, regional theatres and outdoor venues.

Its always been important to me that the podcast is a service to the Canadian theatre scene. Which brings the question: what does the Canadian theatre scene actually need?
