One Night Stand Returns!

Saturday, December 17, 2016

Submit a work in progress or come check out what’s on offer! After a few years hiatus, we are excited to welcome director/producer Tatiana Carnevale to the team to refresh the One Night Stand concept and relaunch it in 2017!

We’ve extended the submission deadline to January 15th, so writers if you are working on something and want to give it a test run or if you are a theatre artist wanting to get involved – check out the one-night-stand-call-for-submission. Everyone else can join us in the audience for a One Night Stand reading of works in progress and experience the future of local theatre.

“I think this idea is so much fun and I am excited to introduce it to the next generation of theatre artists!” said Tatiana, who has confirmed Prairie Theatre Exchange as partner and venue host for the series. Each One Night Stand will take place in PTE’s Colin Jackson Studio.  The evenings are designed to showcase excerpts of new plays, which will be read on stage by an ensemble of local actors.

“Each night will have five or six different scenes featured. Sometimes it will be work that has never been heard before; sometimes it may be a scene that is giving a playwright a particular bit of trouble; it may be something an author wants feedback on”,  said Tatiana, who is excited to see the response to the Call For Submissions. “Depending on the submissions we get, some nights may have a theme, like ‘monologues’ or ‘scenes by playwrights under 25’. We are open to receiving all kinds of submissions as well as ideas!”

The modern One Night Stand Series will premiere on February 2nd. Entrance to each event will be by-donation so that it can be accessible to everyone wishing to take part.
