ReACT: New Plays in Progress

ARTS CLUB’S GOLDCORP STAGE AT THE BMO THEATRE CENTRE18 Oct '18 to 20 Oct '18 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
    Now in its 18th year, ReACT: New Plays in Progress showcases new works by Canadian playwrights, read aloud by a company of actors. After each reading, audience members are invited to take part in a discussion with Ashlie Corcoran (Artistic Director), Stephen Drover (Associate Artistic Director), and the artists. The ReACT reading series demonstrates the Arts Club’s commitment to fostering new works, making the creative process more accessible, and providing a public forum for feedback, as some of Canada’s most talented actors, directors, dramaturgs, and playwrights bring new scripts to life.
     
    Associate Artistic Director Stephen Drover said, “ReACT is an exciting opportunity to get a sneak peek at scripts we’ve been working on via our Silver Commissions Project, plus other scripts we think are pretty fantastic. This year we feature three remarkable scripts from some inspiring Vancouver playwrights. Dave Deveau’s new play In My Country, a black comedy, is set in a fast-food restaurant and explores the lives of newcomers to Canada as they negotiate their differences and make hamburgers. Siminovitch Prize winner Marcus Youssef brings us a holiday play about family, tradition, and what it means to find your own path during the festive yet complicated season with It’s a Wonderful-ish Xmas Holiday Miracle. Finally, Governor General’s Award nominee Anosh Irani is back with a one-person show called Buffoon, about a boy raised in a circus and trying to find love.”
