Theatre Tuesdays, April 5, 12, 19, 26

Tuesdays at 8 pm, Artword Theatre hosts “Theatre Tuesdays” — readings from new plays, works-in-progress, favourite plays. Maybe short theatrical presentations, films about theatre, etc. To get involved, as a writer, reader, presenter, actor, listener… contact us:
Tuesday April 5: Local playwright Peter Gruner reads from new work and work-in-progress. Sponsored by the Playwrights Guild of Canada. Peter’s play “The Laund-o-mat at the End of the World” was a 2009 Fringe hit and a hold-over at Theatre Aquarius.
Tuesday April 12: A reading of Bernard Shaw’s delightful 1912 satire “Fanny’s First Play“. The outer frame in prologue and epilogue feature four theatre critics who have been invited to a performance of a young lady’s first play at her father’s grand home. Savage satire and silly fun, with feisty young women (some of whom are even those trouble-making ‘suffragettes’), pompous parents, callow young men, and of course opinionated critics.
Tuesday April 19: Theatre Tuesday combines with Green Drinks, the once-a-month social gathering of people who are involved in ecological issues. It’s a relaxed and friendly thing, with lots of good conversation. Doors open at 5:30 pm.
At about 8 pm, Artword Theatre presents a 20-minute excerpt from Ronald Weihs’ clown play “The Beavers“, a comedy based on the style of Aristophanes. The chorus of Beavers confront the humans with a satiric analysis, in rhyme, song and dance, of everything the humans have been doing wrong.
Tuesday April 26: TBA
