We, along with Zone41 Theatre, want to send a huge hug, handshake and a thank you to the cast, crew and everyone who came out to see The Miser of Middlegate. What a hilarious way to start our season! We were tickled by the audience’s- as well as our own- response to the show, and we were even more delighted to present an entirely new, completely homegrown piece of theatre. Although there are artists we love working with from other parts of the country, we are humbled by the wealth of artistic talent right here in Manitoba. Lucky us! Lucky you!
Speaking of artists we love from elsewhere, we are about to welcome Iris Turcott into our midst. Where do we begin explaining how amazing Ms. Turcott is? She is a dramaturg extraordinaire (a person who works with a playwright to develop a new script), having worked with some of Canada’s leading playwrights, including Judith Thompson, Daniel MacIvor, Brad Fraser and, very soon, Deb Patterson! Next week, Iris and Deb will plunge headfirst into workshopping Deb’s new piece, Sargent & Victor & Me, set to premiere at TPM in February. We cannot wait to see what they come up with!
