BLOW WIND HIGH WATER
By Sharon Pollock
The public reading of this play took place on June 17th, 2016.
For one Calgary family, the flood of 2013 threatens to wash away more than their home. As the water rises around them, the past and present flow through their lives with a force that will pull them apart or carry them toward a new future together.
SILENCE: MABEL AND ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL
By Trina Davies
The public reading of this play took place on June 23rd, 2016.
Alexander Graham Bell connected people around the world by inventing the telephone. But it was little use to his wife, Mabel, who was completely deaf. A beautiful love story about how we truly communicate. This script was commissioned as part of the 2017 Canada Plays project.
