The Creative City Centre in partnership with the Saskatchewan Playwrights Centre is pleased to present our newest series ‘UpStage at the Centre’. This Staged Reading series premiers on October 5th and will feature and further develop the work of four promising Saskatchewan playwrights. Our first presentation will feature ‘Willow Road’ by Swift Current’s own Wendy Lockman. Eager nurse Kimberly provides care for her literary idol, caustic alcoholic Lee, who is waiting for a liver transplant. As Lee deteriorates physically and mentally, and as feisty housekeeper Martha struggles to keep the whole situation on track, Lee and Kimberly discover unexpected truths about each other and themselves.
After a half day workshop and a full day of rehearsal, Regina actors Kaitlyn Semple, Marianne Woods and Cavan Cunningham, along with Director Kathryn Bracht, will bring the work to life on the Hague Gallery stage. Be there as what was once an idea in a writer’s head becomes a fully developed work of art!
We thank the Department of Canadian Heritage for their support of this series.
