Pat the Dog Playwright Centre’s piece/meal sessions played to full houses during the recent Magnetic North Theatre Festival. Our audience members aren’t the only ones to take notice. Four piece/meal scripts have made their way to theatre festivals in Toronto, Hamilton and Winnipeg.

  • Aftershock by Evan Tsitsias is playing at Summerworks in Toronto from August 7 to the 14. Check the website for dates and times.
  • Northern Daughter by Donna Creighton will be appearing at  THIN AIR (Winnipeg International Writers Festival) in September 2010.
  • An extended version of Bungalow by Vern Thiessen played to rave reviews at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival. Joff Schmidt gave it five stars in his CBC review saying, “Thiessen chooses details with an expert writer’s attention to detail, teasing at times, revealing just enough to engage us, breaking off at just the right points. What’s revealed is funny without being hammy; touching without being cloying.”
