She came to Canada in 1968 with her husband/actor Frank Maraden and first settled in Vancouver. During cross-country auditions for Stratford both were accepted into the company. From 1974 to 1990 she became one of the company's great ingenues; her beautiful voice, elegance and loveliness were evident in Love's Labour's Lost (Katherine), The Tempest (Miranda), Hamlet (Ophelia), and the magnificent John Hirsch production of Three Sisters (Irena opposite Martha Henry's Olga and Maggie Smith's Masha).
From 1992 to 2010 she directed Love's Labour's Lost, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Macbeth, The Merchant of Venice, Alice Through The Looking Glass, Les Belles-soeurs and A Man For All Seasons, and others. In 2008, she had a brief tenure at Stratford as a co-artistic director with Des McAnuff and Don Shipley. She directed The Trojan Women and All's Well That Ends Well in 2008 and The Winter's Tale in 2009. Source: Canadian Theatre Encyclopedia
