Join us on Sunday, January 17th at 3:30pm for a special reading! Winnipeg participates in this cross-Canada initiative with readings from Winnipeg-based playwrights Maureen Hunter and Frances Koncan. Have a drink and hear work by these amazing artists at Prairie Theatre Exchange (3rd Floor Portage Place Shopping Centre).
A panel discussion on Equity in Theatre will follow with organizers Hope McIntyre and Debbie Patterson. Plus we will welcome special guest panelist Evalyn Parry, writer and performer of Spin (being performed at Prairie Theatre Exchange right before this event!).
The reading is made possible through the support of the Playwrights Guild of Canada and the Canada Council for the Arts.
Equity in Theatre is a multi-stakeholder initiative aiming to remedy existing gender inequities in the theatre industry. Through a multi-pronged and inclusive response that involves the community as a whole (artists, stakeholders, and audiences), we promote dialogue, generate greater awareness of and exposure to women theatre practitioners, and develop community-based action plans to help fix industry imbalances.
