Don’t miss Script Tease, a National Theatre of the World event celebrating the 2014 Siminovitch Prize finalists.
In an evening of (un)scripted surprises, Script Tease delivers the work of this year’s Siminovitch Prize finalists as never seen before (or after)!
The National Theatre of the World’s Naomi Snieckus and Matt Baram ask the 2014 Siminovitch finalists to write a few lines of a new play (a tease). Those lines are sealed in an envelope, Naomi and Matt read it cold, and then completely improvise the rest of the scene!
The event is hosted by the 2008 Siminovitch Laureate Daniel MacIvor.
Expect a few celebrity critics to be there too.
The event takes place Sunday October 19 at the Tarragon Theatre, doors at 7 pm, show at 7:30 pm. The Siminovitch Prize will be announced the following evening at the University of Toronto’s Hart House Theatre.
The National Theatre of the World is a multi-disciplinary, Toronto-based, not-for-profit theatre company that creates exciting, provocative, and instantaneous theatre through the art of improvisation.
N.T.O.W. was founded in 2008, by Co-Artistic Directors Matt Baram, Ron Pederson and Naomi Snieckus with the mandate of creating new Canadian work and to encourage the theatre and improvisation communities to come together.
The 2014 Siminovitch Prize finalists are: Michel Marc Bouchard (Lilies and Christina, The Girl King); Olivier Choinière (Autodafé, Félicité/Bliss); Hannah Moscovitch (East of Berlin, This Is War); and Colleen Murphy (The December Man/L’homme de décembre, Pig Girl).For full bios, visit siminovitchprize.com/finalists
