Readings help play writers develop

A series of staged play readings featuring Nanaimo actors returns to help playwrights further develop their work.

Emerging Voices, produced by TheatreOne, provides a venue for emerging writers to have their plays workshopped by professional artists and read before an audience, receiving valuable feedback.

The series begins tonight (Nov. 24) with Death by Volume, by Cobble Hill writer Robert Garfat, a mystery about an aging father and his relationship with his daughter.

Garfat was the artistic director of Dark Horse Theatre in Vancouver as well as owner of Dark Horse Bookshop in Victoria. He recently completed his master’s degree in fine arts from the University of B.C.

The series continues Jan. 10 with The Ginger Goodwin Story, by Victoria’s Michael Stephen, and Good-Housekeeping, by Nicole Nattrass, a second draft of a play first read in Emerging Voices in 2009.

All readings take place at the Coast Bastion Inn at 7:30 p.m. Admission is by donation.
