SHE is a Black woman asking real questions about life. HE is a Black man searching for meaning and understanding. Together, they fight to make their relationship last in a world where “the rules” are always changing.

“Woods deserves credit for the composition and elegance with which she seamlessly integrates these moments into the regular dialogue and fabric of the show.” – Marilla Steuter-Martin,

“Woods, an award-winning multi-disciplinary artist, has infused this semi-autobiographical script with original music, monologue, and poetry to create a unique theatrical experience of spoken word.” – Camila Fitzgibbon, Montreal Theatre Hub

“I particularly enjoyed his fantasizing himself as the black John Travolta from Saturday Night Fever with his moves and attitude.” – Byron Toben, Westmount

A fusion of personal experiences and fiction, playwright Anne-Marie Woods conveys in this new work the vulnerability felt in romantic relationships and the importance of communication.
Through compelling monologues, poetry and song, the female/male rapport is laid bare in this tragicomic battle of wits. SHE SAID/HE SAID is a fresh and nuanced look at relationships through a script that cleverly meanders through the present and past experiences of its two main characters. Where time is subjective, the fourth wall is intermittently torn down and location though specific is universal. Woods has taken a non-conventional approach to telling a modern day love story.
