Workshop West Playwrights' Theatre - DARING GREATLY - Season Launch

Date: Oct 8, 2021

On October 7th, Heather Inglis artistic producer of WWPT, announced the following in a short online teaser: 

Workshop West Playwrights’ Theatre is proud to announce its 43rd season, DARING GREATLY, programming featuring stories by Canadians about Canadians. We find ourselves in exceptional times. Demanding times. Times that require us to examine ourselves, dig deep, push beyond what has become comfortable, and ‘DARE GREATLY.’ Workshop West’s 2021-2022 Season is about taking the risks we need to take to grow and evolve.

  • DARING GREATLY begins with the WORD PREMIERE of Metronome by Edmonton phenomenon Darrin Hagen. This one-person storytelling show about the power of art to transform and unite us runs Nov 11- 21st in the Backstage Theatre.
  • WWPT is thrilled to relaunch the Springboards New Play Festival which will spotlight hot new works by Edmonton playwrights in March of 2022. Audiences will get a sneak-beak behind the curtain at what’s up-and-coming on Edmonton Stages.
  • The second WORLD PREMIER of our season is Tell Us What Happened by and award-winning newcomer to Edmonton’s theatre scene, Michelle Robb. This unforgettable winner of Alberta Playwrighting Competition’s Novitiate Prize about friendship, the internet, and alliances stretched to the breaking point will hit the boards in May of 2022.
  • We will close out the season with Edmonton’s first public presentation of The Shoe Project which features riveting stories by women new to Canada from all over the world, told through the lens of the shoes they have worn.
