POWERFUL HISTORY COMES TO LIFE IN AUGUST’S SCRIPT SALON!
On Sunday, August 7 SCRIPT SALON is pleased to present readings of two radio plays dramatizing contentious, but little known turning points from the history of discovery: Gerald St. Maur’s THE FIRST LAW and THE SOLSTICE MUTINY.
THE STORIES: Gerald St. Maur unveils two gripping historic incidents with two radio plays that pit an individual against overwhelming forces. In THE SOLSTICE MUTINY the tensions and personalities that exiled Captain Henry Hudson to his tragic fate are revealed in compelling confrontations of crew versus captain. In THE FIRST LAW, physicist Robert Mayer faces the opposition and ridicule of his scientific colleagues as he defends a controversial principle that he knows to be certain.
The plays are read by Dave Clarke, Vincent Forcier, Reed McColm, Glenn Nelson and John Sproule.
When: Sunday, August 7 at 7:30pm.
Where: Upper Arts Space at Holy Trinity Anglican Church (10037 84 Avenue).
Admission: Free although donations are accepted.
Refreshments are available. Parking is free.
After the reading the audience is invited to ask questions and provide commentary directly to the playwright.
