The Prairie Theatre Exchange pulled back the curtain on its 2013-2014 season this week, featuring plays by two winners of both the Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama and the prestigious Siminovitch Prize.
Tickets for the new and exciting season went on sale Friday.
“The scripts in the 2013/14 season are tied together by the way that they explore the assumptions that we make about others,” said artistic director Robert Metcalfe. “I am excited about our upcoming season of thoughtful, fun and dynamic contemporary Canadian theatre.”
Plays include “Best Brothers,” “Social Studies,” “Chelsea Hotel — The Songs of Leonard Cohen,” “The Valley,” “Harvest,” and “Portage and Munsch — 50 Below,” based on stories by Robert Munsch and adapted by Debbie Patterson.
Subscription ticket prices remain unchanged this season. Five-play subscription packages range from $99 to $189. Special discounts for seniors and students apply. Call (204) 942-5483 or visit PTE.mb.ca for more information.
