On Thursday, June 11th at 7pm our first virtual edition of our One Night Stand will take place. This series of readings focused on the development of new works has been offered in many iterations over the last eighteen years, but never before on-line. It is a great way to get a sneak peek of what is up-and-coming in Winnipeg’s theatre scene!
We are excited to welcome Launchpad alumni Jonathan Mourant as coordinator for the launching of the virtual One Night Stand Series. An amazing array of script excerpts were submitted by local playwrights and although five have been selected for June, more sessions are possible down the road. Each edition will offer excerpts of new works in early stages of development, read by an ensemble of actors, and tested before an audience. The goal is to focus on the playwright and what would help them get to the next stage with the script they are working on. To that end we’ll be seeking as much feedback as possible from all who tune in. You can join in to provide feedback on Zoom or simply tune in to listen to the livestream on our Facebook Page.
The selections are:
Love Letters for Juliet

conceived by Makrenna Sterdan and Joanne Roberts

Seekers of Atlantis

Strawberries & Cream
