Jan 13 Public Reading of White Noise by Taran Kootenhayoo – 7pm, Plaskett Gallery

Jan 15 Public Reading of Thanks for Giving by Kevin Loring – 7pm, Plaskett Gallery
The New Canadian play with lots to chew on! While Nan bastes the turkey and prepares the stuffing, her husband hides a freshly hunted bear in the garage and her troublesome daughter is raiding her purse again. To top it all off, her grandchildren have chosen this Thanksgiving to disclose some unexpected personal truths to the family. In this intimate and restorative new play, the table is set and the main course is legacy, but the dessert is pumpkin pie.
