Let's give them something to talk about

Hello everyone! GCTC has a long history of providing our audiences with an opportunity to discuss what they have seen on stage or what they are about experience in the theatre. It is part community outreach, part education and always informative. It is a long standing tradition that I’m happy to say continues as we open the 2014-15 season with the World Premiere of The Boy in the Moon.

 

There will be two chances to meet both the Playwright of The Boy in the Moon, Emil Sher and Ian Brown, Author of the best-selling memoir of the same name.

 

Both the interview and the panel discussion are FREE to the public and you don’t have to purchase a ticket to the play that day. You can attend the play another time, but you are welcome to pop in and participate in one or both of the discussions.

 

I’ll be there and I'm looking forward to seeing you there!

 

The Three Lives of The Boy In The Moon – Saturday, Sept. 20th at 2:30pm

The world premiere of The Boy In The Moon was adapted from Ian Brown's bestselling memoir, which began as a series of essays for the Globe and Mail.  Author Ian Brown and Playwright Emil Sher discuss the challenges of adapting the story - and their own writing styles - to different forms. Facilitated by GCTC's Artistic Director, Eric Coates.
