Play Readings

Scroll down on this page for exciting news about our series of Play Readings.

On the last Sunday of each month, (some exceptions) the Guild hosts Play Readings. These are intended to encourage contemporary writers, actors, potential directors and anyone interested in hearing new, old, and sometimes obscure scripts come to life through a reading.

Play readings are presented at no cost to the audience (a hat may be passed around). This all happens upstairs in the Gwen Brown Studio at the Guild at 7 p.m.

A cash bar is also open before and after the readings at the Gwen Brown Studio.

On September 30, 2017 join us for … ‘Six Dance Lesson in Six Weeks’ by Richard Alfieri

This is a delightful comic/drama. The formidable widow of a Baptist Minister hires a gay and acerbic dance instructor to give her dance lessons. Made famous by Uta Hagen and David Hyde Pierce in 2001, this play will be read by JP Baldwin and Bea Quarrie who will be repeating their roles from their Cobourg engagement.

On October 29, 2017 join us for … ‘That Summer’ by David French

In 1990, a middle aged woman returns to the Ontario resort where 30 years earlier, she experienced her first romantic tryst and the sexual encounter that caused seismic ripples in her family life. A deeply touching play from one of Canada’s most revered playwrights.
