Event (Calgary): 30 Year Birthday Bash – Alberta Playwrights’ Network

Alberta Playwrights NetworkOn November 28th, APN will be a hosting a Birthday Bash in our Calgary office!

There will be drinks, music, a silent auction, and a chance to contribute to our brand new party game sensation – Commission.

Commission pits four Alberta playwrights against each other in a high-stakes elimination conflict, where only one play will reach it’s potential. Playwrights are each given a list of words – actions, objects, locations, occupations, emotions, etc – that they will have 30 minutes to incorporate into a play.  Professional actors will read the works aloud to be critiqued by a team of expert judges. Each round – (Exposition, Conflict, and Denouement), one play is Rejected until the last writer is awarded the precious Contract for Production. 

For an additional donation of $30, you can become a Commissioner, providing a word  to be included by the competing playwrights – actions, objects, situations, emotions, colours, locations, adjectives, names. If you want to make an impact, curse-words can be purchased for $300 and must be used by all writers.  Your word-purchase also grants you a single admission to the November 28th event in Calgary (RSVP required) and a tax receipt from APN (minimum $50).

Please come and join in the fun and see how our writers deal with the challenges you provide for them. Hopefully by midnight, we will have reached our goal of $30K.

$30,000 over 30 days, $30 at a time, to celebrate 30 years of APN.

Location: #208 – 331 – 41st Avenue NE, Calgary
