100 Mile Playwright Festival

The Grey-Bruce Arts Collective has partnered with the Beautiful Joe Heritage Society
to produce “The 100 Mile Playwright Festival” this fall.
Proudly Sponsored by

The festival is a two-day celebration of our local stories, artists and playwrights. It is also a vehicle from which playwrights can have their work critiqued and produced. Over the course of one week, three local plays will be workshopped and at the end of the week, read in front of a public audience. After each play presentation, there will be a small reception with local entertainment where audience members can meet the playwright and actors.
Two plays, “A theatrical adapatation of Beautiful Joe” and “The Tank Range Project” are local stories, the latter also written by area playwrights.
The third play in the festival is written by the winner of “From the Page to the Stage, Youth Playwright Contest.” After reviewing all the submissions from the area, Megan MacKay, a grade 10 student at West Hill Secondary School in Owen Sound, was chosen to write her own original play this summer in consultation with Miss Suzanne Turnbull, a professional dramaturge.
Tickets will go on sale later this summer.
