Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre is holding a fundraising event called Playable Moments on Monday, April 3 at 7:30 pm at The Bus Stop Theatre in Halifax. The admission price is $20. A cash bar will be open during the evening.
Playwrights Juanita Peters, Ryan Griffiths and Charlie Rhindress are each preparing one to two pages of the beginning of a script. An ensemble of four actors will use the scripts provided as a starting point, improvising its continuation.
Audience members will have the chance to influence the twists and turns each script takes.
For an additional price of five dollars audience members can suggest lines or ideas which will go into the hat and drawn at random. With each new suggestion the actors will improvise a new part of the play, steering them in unforeseen directions. With the help of a dramaturge to orchestrate among the script, the actors, and the audience, we’ll see what playable moments emerge.
