Ontario Off Stage

Behind The Scenes At Ontario’s Theatres
  • Another Grassroots playwright is getting a new premiere in November: Joan Burrows’ newest play Gloria’s Guy will be presented at Alumnae Theatre Company as part of FireWorks.  I also saw that Neil Marr’s PS Uncle Angus will be presented by Peterborough Theatre Guild—a show that the director first saw as a world premiere at Markham Little Theatre as part of the ACT-CO 2010-2011 Festival where it won the Outstanding Presentation of a Drama.  These announcements demonstrate that some community theatres are not reticent to develop and produce new Canadian plays, given the right circumstances
