Join Edmonton playwrights Conni Massing and Marty Chan and CBC’s Alberta Anthology producer, Allan Boss, on Wednesday, May 16, for a fun-filled evening where our panelists will mouth off about what makes a good dramatic monologue. Actors Beth Graham and Jared Matsunaga-Turnbull will perform a selection of monologues.
As an added bonus, writers are invited to submit their solo pieces. A few entries will be selected to be performed, and our panel of experts will provide constructive feedback on these pieces in the style of American Idol, but without the nasty comments. The deadline for submissions is May 11, and submissions must be no longer than 1,000 words.
Admission is free, and refreshments will be served.
Workshop West/NLT Third Space, 11516 – 103 Street
