What’s On (Edmonton): “Pugwash” New Play by Vern Thiessen – Script Salon


On Sunday, January 1 SCRIPT SALON launches a brand new year with a brand new play by one of Canada’s most distinguished playwrights: Vern Thiessen. PUGWASH is a fascinating mix of international intrigue and small town manners set against a backdrop of a world teetering on the brink of disaster.

In the hottest days of the Cold War, the homey residents of the tiny fishing village of Pugwash, Nova Scotia could never dream that their remote little community would unexpectedly become the meeting place for a mysterious team of world-renowned scientists. Secrets and clashes of culture are inevitable. But what happens over the course of those three days will change the world forever.

Read by Kristi Hansen, Doug Mertz, Spasoje Z. Milovanovic, Glenn Nelson, Meiko Ouchi and Jordan Sabo.

When: Sunday, January 1 at 7:30 pm.

Where: Upper Arts Space at Holy Trinity Anglican Church (10037 84 Avenue).

Admission is 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 back to the playwright.

SCRIPT SALON is sponsored and supported by the Playwrights Guild of Canada, Alberta Playwrights Network and Holy Trinity Anglican Church.
