Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre is holding a fundraising event called Playable Moments on Monday, April 9th at 7:30 pm at The Bus Stop Theatre in Halifax.
PARC is looking for three PARC member playwrights to participate in this event. Here’s how it works:
- Prepare a five page scene; any theme, any setting, any characters... it’s your choice. The scene should be from an imaginary play of yours. At the event, an ensemble of four actors will perform a staged reading of your scene. Audience members will have the chance to buy a line of dialogue, a stage direction, etc. These ideas will go into your brand new second sequential scene (you’ll have time to write a rough draft). After our intermission, the actors will perform the new scene; however, audience members will still be able to buy lines and such to be inserted into your script.
- A Guest Dramaturge will orchestrate the script, the actors, and the audience, and we'll see what Playable Moments emerge!
If last year’s event is any indication, the 2018 Playable Moments will be a Marx-Brothers-load of fun....
You want to play? The deadline is March 1st!
