I am very pleased and thrilled to be part of the Banff Playwrights Lab 2019, next April, invited by Brian Quirt, Director of the Lab.
The work I will develop is my play Playas desdentadas (Antesala de la felicidad) in Spanish as well as in English, with the support of a team of actors.
I can’t wait to be in front of Mount Rundle and write for hours, meeting new theaters coleagues.
Thank you Banff Theater Lab
The Banff Playwrights Lab was created by playwrights Tom Hendry and George Ryga in the early 1970s. Celebrating its 46th season in 2019, the Lab has sustained its founding principles of focusing on playwrights and developing new works away from the pressures of a producing theatre.
Each year the Lab welcomes Canadian playwrights and their collaborators, providing each writer with a residency tailored to their specific needs with the goal of nurturing, challenging, and inspiring the next phase of their work. Each Lab features international writer/dramaturg teams, an acting company, and partnerships with organizations from across Canada and beyond.
The 2019 Lab will feature several new initiatives to expand the range of projects and enhance accessibility.
