THEATRE BSMT ANNOUNCES THEIR SECOND SHOW OF THEIR 2014/15 SEASON
BEST OF BSMT DWELLERS
3 STAGED READINGS OF SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE SUBMISSIONS
TO OUR PLAYWRITING COMPETITION
Theatre BSMT cancelled their second show of our 2014/15 season Flesh & Ghost due to lack of funding and have replaced it with a play reading fundraiser, The Best of BSMT Dwellers. We will be featuring three shows that have been entered into our BSMT Dwellers Competition that we really loved but did not produce. These shows are:
Millie and Moe be Adeel Salman – February 19, 2015 at 8pm
Director – Kyle Schulte
Millie and Moe is about afterlife and death. It deals with how the rational mind tries to justify, understand and respond to these concepts. It is the story of two young women who have just died and are experiencing afterlife.
Millie and Moe was submitted to the 2014 BSMT Dwellers Playwriting Competition. The play was developed under the mentorship of Lucy Thurber in New York. It has gone through several rewrites and two readings done at Cannon Theater and Dixon Place, New York.
Ascending the Blue by Ryan Reese – February 20, 2015 at 8pm
Director – Amy Dettling
At the climax of the American Civil War, a seasoned war fighter and a young French Canadian endure one of the bloodiest conflicts to ever take hold of North America. As they prepare to face the enemy, their interactions and observations of one another begin to reveal that their destinies are on a collision course.
Ryan Reese is the winner of our 2014 BSMT Dwellers Playwriting Competition for his script Before the Night Takes Us which we will be producing in May 2015. Before the Night Takes Us and Ascending the Blue were both winners of the Discovery Prize for the Alberta Playwrights’ Network Playwriting Competition.
Brother Ry by Steven Owad – February 21, 2015 at 8pm
Director – Kathryn Smith
Steven Owad was the winner of our 2013 BSMT Dwellers Playwriting Competition for his script The Basement Boys which won Best New Script at the 2014 Critter Awards. The Basement Boys also received 3 other nominations at the 2014 Critter Awards including Best Director (Chelsey Fawcett), Best Supporting Actor (Dj Gellatly), and Best Actor in a Leading Role (Greg Wilson).
