What’s On (National): Craft Bites – Playwrights Guild of Canada

Playwrights Guild of Canada (PGC) presents a new play reading series Craft Bites to be streamed online beginning on Monday, January 25, 2021.

Craft Bites is an online reading series, exploring the talents of Canadian playwrights and theatre artists. Each of the live events in the series features a cooperative session wherein two playwrights meet through a Zoom meeting to each perform a short reading of their work for an audience. Following the readings, the playwrights engage in a conversation about their written work and theatre practice. The web series highlights Canada-wide talent, featuring playwrights Lucia Frangione, Frances Koncan, Beau Dixon, and many more. Craft Bites connects interested and creative individuals from varied backgrounds in a collaborative and interactive play reading experience.

This web series builds on the success of previous projects presented by Playwrights Guild of Canada such as the Playwright to Playwright series, A Pinch of Creativity, and several International Webinars. Funding for Craft Bites is provided by the Canada Council for the Arts through the PlayConnect Program.

Craft Bites will be streamed over Zoom for free. Visit www.playwrightsguild.ca/craftbites for details and the links to register as a viewer.
