Pat the Dog Playwright Centre continues its popular piece/meal reading series with an exciting, expanded

We’ll  be serving up a light meal and four new, full-length theatre pieces — all of which originated from our
playwright centre. The smorgasbord of plays includes a mix of works from playwrights across the province and is accompanied by food and the launch of a visual arts installation in the historic Button Factory. Attendees to the
November 16 session will be the first to see Gareth Lichty’s newest creation.

This is My Drum by Heather Majaury. This piece honours the thundering silence and the dancing through that connects to prayer when there is little left to say about anything. Be advised, there will be mature content, strong language and sexual themes. Would you expect anything less?
