Playwrights @ TAG Festival
ZOOM!!!! Where did two years go? It’s time for TAG’s Fifth(!) Biennial Playwrights @ TAG Festival.
As with everything else, because of the Pandemic, there will be adjustments. Since we are unable to have live performances, Playwrights @ TAG is moving online.
So many of our activities, work and play, have been conducted on Zoom or similar platforms. What challenges have you experienced transitioning to using these platforms? What’s life like under lockdown and ever-changing Public Health Regulations?
Write and submit an original, maximum 20-minute (minimum 10 minutes) play to be performed/recorded on Zoom about life under lockdown. Keep the cast to 3 or 4. Drama, comedy, musical, dance – the possibilities are endless. Three plays will be chosen by February 28, 2021. They will be pre-recorded either on TAG’s or another Zoom account to be presented online for three nights March 25-27, 2021.
Alone / Choices - POSTPONED
Dear Members and Patrons, In response to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases within the Central zone, Theatre Arts Guild has opted to err on the side of caution and has made the difficult decision to postpone the two one acts plays, Alone and Choices, written by Nick Jupp, which were scheduled to open November 19th. The health and safety of the cast, crew, patrons, and the community remains our priority. We are truly sorry for this unexpected turn of events.
If you purchased tickets via Ticket Atlantic, you will be issued a refund.
Many thanks to the cast and crew for all their hours of work, and to our patrons for their continued support. Stay tuned, we will be back!
Thought, Word, and Deed
Did you miss our first audio play? Worry not. Thought, Word, and Deed is streaming once again. Set in the quiet town of Cochrane, Ontario in the mid-1990s, rumours surround two young lovers, Chris and Cayleigh, after they left a birthday party one Saturday night. As the town speculates, Cayleigh is sneaking out, Chris has run off, and her brother Jeremy seeks justice. But what really happened that night? What really happened between Chris and Cayleigh at the bandstand?
