PARC is proud to announce the participants of PARC's annual Playwrights' Colony, a two week writing retreat set on the Mount Allison University campus from May 5 - 19th, 2019. Eleven playwrights are joining together to write, develop and refine their scripts with the support of a team of dramaturges and workshop actors. The Colony provides playwrights with the time to write, to reflect and to revisit their work in a supportive and nurturing environment.
PARC's Artistic Director, Pamela Halstead, will be working with visiting dramaturges Richie Wilcox and Ellen Peterson. The participating playwrights from across Atlantic Canada and beyond will be: Wes Babcock, Gillian Clark, Lily Falk, Ryan Griffith, Kathleen Hamilton. Sharon King-Campbell, LIndsay Kyte, Juanita Peters and Tara Taylor. They will be joined by David Kennedy and Kenneth Wilson-Harrington who will be working on a devised theatre piece, a first for the PARC Colony.
PARC is proud to present a reading of the playwrights' works in the second week of the Colony called In Their Own Words. This is a public reading of excerpts of the works-in-progress held in the Motyer-Fancy Theatre on the Mount Allison University campus on Wednesday, May 15th, 2019 at 7:30 pm.
