For Jupiter Theatre‘s inaugural Europa New Works Incubator we are workshopping and developing two new works by local playwrights this fall. The plays both embody what makes Jupiter Theatre so exciting: speculative fiction, mythology, and imaginative storytelling. The culmination of this work will be presented on September 9 and 10, 2021 at the Central Calgary Library, 800 3 St SE, Calgary, AB.
The plays will be read in person in Patricia A. Whelan Performance Hall of the Central Library in downtown Calgary and simultaneously streamed online to our Facebook and YouTube channel. This event is FREE! For the in-person event, masks and physical distancing will be required by all attendees.
Registration is in online in advance. You will need a Calgary Library Card number to attend: calgarylibrary.ca/events-and-programs/programs
