Library: Sign up for the Purple Play Club and Get Outside the Lines – Theatre Alberta

Theatre Alberta’s Library is participating in Outside the Lines, a weeklong celebration demonstrating the creativity and innovation happening in libraries around the world. More than 230 libraries from Canada, Denmark, Croatia, United Kingdom, Puerto Rico, and all over the United States are participating from September 11-17.


How it works:

  • Sign up and we’ll mail you (free-of-charge) 3 randomly selected plays by Canadian playwrights. This year we want to showcase local and contemporary work so one is guaranteed to be an Albertan play or new purchase.
  • We want to see WHERE you are reading! Once you receive your plays, share a photo with us via Twitter or Instagram using #TApurpleplay. The photo could be taken in your home, your community, or at a popular theatre venue nearby (BONUS POINTS if you get our new purple bags in the picture).
  • All entries using the hashtag will be entered to win! The winner will be randomly selected on September 30. If you don’t have Twitter or Instagram you can email us your photo and we will share it on your behalf.

To sign up: Email with “TA Purple Play” in the subject line. You must be a Theatre Alberta member to receive books therefore please include the name or group your membership is registered under. For this event, we will also mail books to our Edmonton-based members!

Winning Prize: The winner will receive a 1-year complimentary Theatre Alberta membership and a purple bag curated by Alberta’s theatre professionals mailed right to your door every month.

Last year we mailed 60 members over 425 plays throughout Alberta in one week. Let’s see if we can beat that this year!

(HUGE shout out to Maggie MacKenzie and Morgan Norwich for suggesting the new name)
