Whose Fires? Which Home?

An evening of conversation with Vancouver playwrights
Tuesday November 4, 7pm – 9pm (doors 6:30pm)
Playwrights Theatre Centre Test Kitchen Studio, 2nd floor, 739 Gore
Free

What alchemy inspires writers to transform their worlds and their stories? How is a real life community reimagined in the fiction of new plays? Writers whose work has arisen from this place on Coast Salish territory share their thoughts about the interplay between personal story and ancestral memory, inspiration, place and fiction. Join writers Beverly Dobrinsky (Bread & Salt), Hiro Kanagawa (Indian Arm, upcoming with Rumble Theatre), Renae Morriseau (Storyweaving), Brenda Prince (UBC Masters student), and Quelemia Sparrow (Xwayxway, in development with Full Circle) for an interesting and sure to be lively conversation. Hosted by Playwrights Theatre Centre and presented with the Heart of the City Festival.

Please note there are stairs leading up to this venue, and alas, there is no wheelchair access.
