original: a workshop

I have been working for a couple of years on a new play featuring the stories of 3 first human women from 3 mythologies: Eve, Pandora, and Embla. This is the piece I was working on with the Arts & Culture Centre Playwrights’ Unit, and it is safe to say that I would not be ready to go into this workshop without that program and the attention of its dramaturge, Megan Coles.

I’m very happy to announce that original will receive a full professional workshop and staged reading in the coming weeks, thanks to a grant from the City of St. John’s, and to PerSIStence Theatre.

I’ll be working with Berni Stapleton & Sara Tilley, with Willow Kean as development actor, to pull together a workshop performance, which will take place on Monday, October 2nd at 7pm. Admission is FREE and donations of cash or gently-used clothing will be accepted for The Women’s Centre on behalf of the Status of Women Council. We are at The Annex, which is a beautiful new arts building in Mount Pearl, just behind Admiralty House Museum.
