PTC and the Vancouver Fringe Festival are pleased to announce that the team comprised of Anais West and Sara Vickruck is the winner of the 2018 Fringe New Play Prize for “Poly Queer Love Ballad”. The Prize includes a free Mainstage spot at the 2018 Vancouver Fringe, the design and execution of a development process for the play with PTC’s Project Dramaturg Joanna Garfinkel, and a free spot in PTC’s how-to-produce-theatre seminar series, Block P.
PTC’s Kathleen Flaherty was having one of many passionate and enlightening conversations with theatre maker (and PTC Associate 2010 -13) Lisa C. Ravensbergen when Lisa spoke briefly about asking a director whether she was to portray a character as white. Kathleen admits that the idea was so startling to her that, at first, she didn’t stop to inquire. Later, Lisa agreed to talk about what she meant and we have edited that conversation for sharing.
Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
BRING POWERFUL STORIES TO LIFE. WrightSpace (formerly the Colony) – is bringing together four visionary writers with dramaturg, Lindsay Lachance, to tell stories rooted in Indigenous experiences: Tania Carter, Taran J. Kootenhayoo, Joseph Tony Dandurand, Frances Koncan. It takes our whole community to provide the resources these playwrights need to tell their stories. Your gift of $300 funds two actors for one day of the workshop. $150 sponsors one day of one playwright's fees. $75 covers local travel for our Winnipeg playwright. Please donate at CanadaHelps (click below). Donate $100 or more before Nov. 30 and get a VIP invite to meet the writers at our WrightSpace artists’ launch on Dec. 5. #WrightSpace #Indigenous #newplays
