PARC regrets to announce that because of unforeseen circumstances tonight’s event, More Playable Moments, has been cancelled. Ticket holders will be contacted to arrange reimbursement.
Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre is holding a fundraising event called More Playable Moments on Monday, April 9 at 7:30 pm at The Bus Stop Theatre in Halifax. The admission price is $20. A cash bar will be open during the evening.
Playwrights Mark Foster, Kim Parkhill and Andrew Chandler are each preparing five pages of a scene from a non-existent play. An ensemble of four actors including Henry Gielis, Genevieve Steele, Ian Gilmore and Ivy Charles will use the scripts provided as a starting point, improvising its continuation.
Audience members will have the chance to influence the twists and turns each script takes.
For only two dollars, audience members can suggest a new line of dialogue, mood music, the theme for a character monologue, or other ideas for the scene. They’ll all go into the hat to be drawn at random. With each new suggestion, the actors will improvise a new part of the play, steering them in unforeseen directions, and inspiring the playwrights to frantically create a new following scene. With the help of a dramaturge to orchestrate the theatrical madness, the actors, and the audience, we'll see what playable moments emerge.
Tickets are for sale through Ticket Halifax at http://tickethalifax.com/. As well, tickets can be purchased by phone using Visa at 902-423-5358 or toll free at 1-877-845-1341. Tickets will also be for sale at the door on the evening of the event.
