Special Guest Playwright Erin Shields at our Next Salon
Join us on November 7th at 7:00 p.m. for a night at Prairie Theatre Exchange (our co-host for TPM ‘s 2nd Salon of the 2016-17 season) featuring the work of tenacious Canadian writer Erin Shields, delivered by local artists and the playwright herself.
Erin will be in Winnipeg for this evening of readings from her plays If We Were Birds, The Millennial Malcontent, and Montparnasse as we prepare for the launch of her play Beautiful Man.
Erin is a Montreal based playwright and actor. She won the 2011 Governor General’s Award for her play If We Were Birds, which premiered at Tarragon Theatre where she is currently a playwright-in-residence. Her adaptation of Ibsen’s The Lady from the Sea was part of The Shaw Festival’s 2015 season.
The evening also boasts some delicious side dishes: performances by TPM’s Student Reps from their new work Science Affairs, and music to boot. Doors open at 6:00pm. Program begins at 7:00pm.
Come for a glass of wine and some camaraderie, and whet your appetite for Beautiful Man running November 17-27 at the Rachel Browne Theatre.
This event is free of charge. Generously sponsored by the Canada Council For the Arts and the Playwrights Guild of Canada.
