Artstrek’s Exploration lll was so honoured to have a visit from Governor General Award winning playwright, Vern Theissen, last week.
Participants were able to speak directly with him about his play, Vimy which was the play of study this year, as well as Bluebirds which he wrote specifically for Artstrek. Vern’s work inspired many keen questions from participants and excellent conversations. He provided participants with a very unique opportunity to meet with a internationally recognized playwright.
Many thanks to Vern for generously giving his time to Artstrek. July was a busy month for him with productions of his work being done Off Broadway, in Toronto and in Parsboro, Nova Scotia.
