Intrepid Theatre launches New Play Reading Series

Intrepid Theatre launches New Play Reading Series.

I’m a big fan of play readings and play workshops. They are an important part of the play development process and represent an opportunity for the playwright to “test” their work in front of a live audience.   I received the following message from Janet Munsil, Artistic Director at Intrepid Theatre.

Intrepid Theatre has launched a New Play Reading Series at the Intrepid Theatre Club, on the first Tuesday of each month. These are sit-down readings of complete scripts by our region’s playwrights: either new work, or work that has been produced outside Victoria.

The readings are open to the public by donation.

We are devoting the first six months of readings to plays by local women, most of them members of the Playwrights Guild of Canada, in support of the PGCs Equity in Theatre Initiative. Fewer than one-quarter of plays produced in Canada are by women, down from a historic high of 28% in 2006.

I wanted to share the lineup of the first three events, and hope that you’ll be able to join us in supporting the work of local dramatists!

Location: Intrepid Theatre Club (#2 – 1609 Blanshard St, Victoria); accessible venue, parking, concession and cash bar available.

Tuesday November 4, 8 pm – MAD LADY PEEL by Kirsten Van Ritzen
Tuesday December 2, 8 pm – WHITE LIES by Jennifer Wynne Webber
Tuesday February 3, 8 pm – HAND OF JANE by Karen Lee Pickett

More information about upcoming events will be posted at
