Based on a real program in which West German secretaries were targeted and psychologically profiled to determine their ‘perfect man,’ an East German spy is sent to develop a long-term relationship with the target; The Romeo Initiative is half romantic comedy, half spy thriller with a tantalizing twist.
Written by local playwright, Trina Davies, who is now based in Vancouver, The Romeo Initiative was a finalist for Canada’s top literary prize the Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama 2012 and was the winner of the National Enbridge Prize for Established Artist. Her plays have been performed across Canada and in a number of other countries including the United States, Germany, Italy, and India.
