Now in its 25th season thanks to the support of the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild and the Playwrights Guild of Canada, the English and Theatre Departments at the University of Regina in partnership with the Centre for the Study of Script Development are hosting the 2017-2018 season of the Regina Playwrights Reading Series. Featuring 6-8 playwrights from across Canada as well as Saskatchewan annual from September through March, these readings provide a venue for playwrights to not only read from past work and work in progress but also open a window into their creative process, what motivates them to write and their role in the production and publication of their work.
The theme for this year’s series is “Bridging What Divides Us,” and each writer has been chosen for the different ways in which their work relates to the theme.
The last reading on March 7 will feature the collective of writers who created Making Treaty 4, a play first performed at the University of Regina in August 2017 and now scheduled in the Globe Theatre’s 2018-2019 season. Skyler Anderson, Jesse Archibald Barber, Teddy Bison, Erin Goodpipe, Erroll Kinistino, Pette Kitwayhat, and Noel Starblanket will talk about their creative process and show video clips from the August production.
