Based on Margaret Atwood’s poem, Half-hanged Mary, and on true events in 1685, ROPEd is the heroic tale of Mary Webster, a healer and landowner, who is confronted by her Puritan neighbours with accusations of witchcraft. Mary is not one to go down without a fight. Now, with all her strength and spirit, she will fight for her very life.
Submitted by Rakhee Morzaria, Writer/Producer/Lead Actor
Confident, but often misinformed, Rakhee is just trying to get it right. Small situations spiral out of control as she navigates friendships, feminism, and identity in this offbeat series set in Toronto.
Opening the doors to Toronto’s oldest cross-dressing stores, viewers get a glimpse into the colourful lives of its customers and their tender relationships with the eccentric storeowner, revealing the vital role the store continues to play in Toronto’s cross-dressing community.
