Operation SUNshine is a full-length solo performance about the time I rescued 179 SUNshine Girls from the basement of my childhood home.

The SUNshine Girls, models who posed for the Toronto SUN newspaper from 1988-1991, and their reverse news articles come to life and provide the catalyst for true and fictional stories about the objectification of women, children in peril and gender-based violence.


Experience a bygone era of Toronto as a child of the city navigates sites of danger in this dark comedy and coming-of-age story.

Written and performed by Jennifer McKinley

Directed by Clara McBride

" ... a heartstopping one-woman show that ingeniously turns hard topics into the funniest and most poignant hour and a half."

" ... a personal, honest, and socially relevant piece of theatre that is indisputably brilliant."
