Staged Readings of Contemporary Canadian Plays

Directed by Emma Tibaldo            

Get to know Contemporary Canadian plays over a 12-week period. We will make a small dent by looking at four plays by four playwrights. The emphasis will be on discovering the world of the play, imagining what their stage design might be, and experimenting with performing a play as a reading. It will be an intensive dive into the worlds of four incredible imaginations.
