OUT OF THE KITCHEN READINGS: NOVA SCOTIA
From December 13-15, 2017 three Nova Scotian playwrights were granted dramaturgical time with Mary Vingoe or PARC Artistic Director Pamela Halstead, and a team of professional actors, to help them take their plays to the next level.
The three plays that were featured were: Downed Hearts by Catherine Banks, The Green Book by Juanita Peters and Scoop by Julie Vandervoort. Actors working on the development were: Des Adams, Mauralea Austin, Sarah English, Sharleen Kalayil, Stephanie MacDonald, Jennifer Overton, Jeff Schwager, Nathan Simmons, Jackie Torrens and Julia Williams.
The workshops took place at the Cultural Federations of Nova Scotia. The Out of the Kitchen Readings: Nova Scotia were made possible through the generous support of Arts Nova Scotia.
