The last few weeks have been full of workshopping new work with The Arts Club, PTC,  Pi Theatre and Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre.

LEAP! at The Arts Club is a writing intensive for young playwrights headed up by Shawn Macdonald.   As part of the development process, we actors come in for a read, workshop and then second read-all culminating in a series of public staged readings at The Revue Stage on Granville Island.

Working with PTC on Jordan Hall‘s amazing script, Travelling Light, was a mind-bending experience, as well as Sean Devine‘s hilarious and political piece, In the Unlikely Event of War-which was presented as part of the SFU Woodward’s Cultural Program and as part of Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre’s Pull the Pin community engagement series, in partnership with Pi Theatre.

Readings for LEAP! continue this weekend and next…go to www.artsclub.com for details!
