The Digital Stage: Janet Munsil & the Canadian Play Thing
Hosted by Intrepid Theatre Company
Playwright Janet Munsil took to Zoom early on in the pandemic, creating The Canadian Play Thing from her home in Victoria to support playwrights in getting their work read on a new digital stage. Janet and The Canadian Play Thing’s Project Coordinator Justin F Lee join Intrepid’s Sean Guist to talk about creating theatre in the digital space, the challenges, the rewards, and where we might go from here.
Since launching in March, The Canadian Play Thing has featured readings of more than 60 scripts from playwrights across the country have been read online and new projects, like The Apartment of Writing, have been created to support and develop new work from playwrights.
This event has live-transcribed, real-time captioning (CART) and American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation.
