Prairie Theatre Exchange is about to kick off a humourous, but brief, solo show from playwright Daniel MacIvor.
Who Killed Spalding Gray? stars MacIvor and is directed by fellow theatre superstar Daniel Brooks.
WINNIPEG — An expanded offering of plays is promised for theatre-goers at Prairie Theatre Exchange this season.
PTE’s 2018-19 season includes the newly-added Leap Series, a new series of challenging and provoking plays that push the boundaries of story-telling in theatre.
WINNIPEG — The artistic director of Prairie Theatre Exchange is preparing to leave the company this June.
Robert Metcalfe will complete his 15th season when his contract expires.
Prairie Theatre Exchange is knocking down borders to open their 2017-18 season this fall.
The Winnipeg theatre group launches its 45th season October 11-29 with Gracie by Joan McLeod.
“Borders are generally thought to protect and define us, but they actually restrict us from getting a broader perspective,” said PTE artistic director Robert Metcalfe.
Remember being sat down to hear about the birds and the bees? A new production at Prairie Theatre Exchange delves deeper, but is literally set against a backdrop of actual birds and bees. (Get your mind out of the gutter).
“The Birds and the Bees” is a comedy about sex, love and relationships, following characters who navigate romantic emotion and all the extras that come along with it.
Temperatures lately in Winnipeg rival those of Churchill, Manitoba, but it’s the warm stories and experiences from the northern community that really make an impression on its visitors.
Local playwright Ginny Collins knows all about that, having visited Churchill several years ago and churning her time there into a new production at Prairie Theatre Exchange.
Mother knows best. Or in this case, Mom’s the Word.
That’s the new comedic production currently running at Prairie Theatre Exchange looking at the world of motherhood. Anecdotes, or “mom”-ologues as PTE calls them, make up this refreshed play written by six Vancouver actors.
“I’m looking forward to introducing it to a new generation of parents,” said PTE artistic director Robert Metcalfe. “But I also think it will remind those of us whose small-child-parenting days are behind us, just what an incredible journey we took with our little ones.”
