“Good morning, Greater Sudbury. Here are some stories to start your day.

PlaySmelter kicks off May 9. For the first time in its five-year history, PlaySmelter, Sudbury’s new work theatre festival, will feature two full productions. You’re invited to take in these new works by local playwrights next week: “Blind Nickel Pig” by Lara Bradley and Receiver of Wreck by Matthew Heiti. The May 9-13 festival, run by Pat the Dog Theatre Creation, also features first readings of three new scripts: Pakistani Sugar by Brigitte Gall, Debwewin (Truth) by Sarah Gartshore and The Sandcastle by Eli Chilton. Aspiring theatre producers will also be mentored on how to build theatre productions from the ground up during the festival.”
