undercurrents is (almost) over!

It's the last weekend of undercurrents – only two more days to experience GCTC's festival of independent theatre before it closes for 2014.

 

This was my fourth (and will be my final) year as Festival Director for undercurrents. Since we launched in 2011 both the theatre and broader community have thrown their support behind the festival, allowing us to grow from a festival with 24 performances in our first year to the 44 performances showcased this year. More than 100 artists (and more than half of them local) have participated in undercurrents as actors, playwrights, directors, designers, stage managers and/or technicians; and I'm proud to say we've also premiered seven new Canadian plays – all by Ottawa artists.

 

Not bad for four year's work, is it?

 

But enough looking back! There's still time for you to get to the festival this year! You have a lot of excellent theatre to look forward to this weekend...
