A TWISTED FAIRY TALE IS TOLD IN THE LATEST SCRIPT SALON
The Edmonton and area members of the Playwrights Guild of Canada are pleased to announce the fourth of their SCRIPT SALON events. SCRIPT SALON showcases some of the most talented theatre writers in the region with new plays ripe for production read by professional actors in the elegant setting of Holy Trinity Anglican Church.
Presented the first Sunday of every month with a different play by a different playwright featured every time, SCRIPT SALON is a bounteous buffet of sizzling comedy, drama, romance and adventure forged by the power of imagination.
On Sunday August 3 at 7:30 PM SCRIPT SALON will present Heather Morrow’s subversive comic fairy tale: THE UGLY PRINCESS.
THE STORY: Helena is the crown princess of the rich, tiny kingdom of Halla, but she is also genuinely ugly. Her father, King Harald, has been declared insane. The king, the ugly princess, and her cousin the duchess have been shut away in a remote castle with only one smarmy servant. And when the proverbial handsome prince Eric insists on visiting Halla’s royal family, he brings an unexpected storybook ending.
Read by Julien Arnold, Lora Brovold, Oscar Derkx, Tom Edwards and Alana Hawley.
Sunday August 3 at 7:30 in the Upper Arts Space at Holy Trinity Anglican Church (10037 84 Avenue).
Admission is free although donations are accepted. Refreshments will be provided. Parking is free.
After the reading the audience is encouraged to ask questions and provide commentary directly to the playwright.
SCRIPT SALON is sponsored and supported by the Playwrights Guild of Canada, Alberta Playwrights Network and Holy Trinity Anglican Church.
