- Post Marginal: Cultural Diversity as Theatrical Practice from Modern Times Stage Company opens on Sunday. It’s a workshop and a symposium project that intends to “transition cultural diversity in the theatre from exercises in identity politics into a form of contemporary theatrical practice.” The keynote speaker is Donna-Michelle St. Bernard (our Festival Playwright-in-Person in 2016 in North Bay.) We are proud to be a Major Partner for this project.
