On May 18-22, 2016, the Gypsy Stage Company, under the direction of Internationally acclaimed director, Ruth K. Brown, took Sapperstein & Murway’s work, Women are from Venus, Men are from Uranus, to the Liverpool International Theatre Festival in Liverpool Nova Scotia Canada.  They represented the United States against an amazing lineup of talented directors, actors and theatrical works from all over the world.

Well, it was a very talented group of directors and actors, with some amazingly written theatrical works, all performed at one of the most stunning events involving the entire community of Liverpool Nova Scotia in a way that was positively second to none!  It was such an honor to be a part of this, to be among such talented peers and with a devoted and giving community such as this.

We were fortunate to come home with a lasting memory and an even bigger honor … The Gypsy Stage Company brought home the First Place award for our work.  It was such a thrill to represent our country in this way and we wish to express our profound gratitude to the Gypsy Stage Company and Ruth K. Brown for their love of our work and belief in its ability to “bring home the gold.”
