May 6: Lucia Frangione, LEAVE OF ABSENCE reading, PTC
Lucia has been working away on a new script, LEAVE OF ABSENCE. It got a first round at Alberta Theatre Projects. Then Pacific Theatre came up with a grant to commission more rewrites and hire D.D. Kugler to dramaturg, and drew Playwrights Theatre Centre into the process: they've paid actors and Morris Ertman (the director), provided workshop space. Cia's also gotten subsequent grant support from a couple other sources - Canada Council, I think maybe?
Anyhow, Playwrights Theatre Centre has chosen the play to present as part of their New Play Festival. It's slated for Sunday May 6 at 8pm, I'm guessing at the PTC venue on Granville Island. It's not updated at their website yet, but hopefully soon!
