New West audiences have a unique chance to be part of a brand-new play in progress.
Way Off-Broadway Wednesdays is presenting a new feature, Script Tease – an interactive workshop of a never-before-heard script.
On Wednesday, Oct. 10, playwright Mary Littlejohn will present her play Poetry in Motion, a dark comedy about a group of literary figures in a waiting room filled with Reader's Digests. The actors who will bring the show to life are drawn from the audience on that very night. If you want to take part, drop your name in the hat, and you can have your chance to shine in the cold read of the new play.
The event is notable for its use of blind, inclusive casting and for its support of local playwrights in their creative development, a press release notes.
Audiences on the same night will be treated to a taste of Gitch, an in-development buffoon clown show from S.E. Grummet. Grummet plays the fool as “Gitch” (that’s Saskatchewanian for “underwear”) – “a redneck with a bone to pick, and a catfish puppet sidekick who aims to be the voice of reason.”
Way Off-Broadway Wednesdays shows start at 7 p.m. in the back room at the Heritage Grill, 447 Columbia St. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. You can show up early, or reserve a table at 604-759-0819. All shows are on a pay-what-you want basis.
