Our popular series of staged readings returns with plays about two extraordinary Canadians. In Colony of Unrequited Dreams by Robert Chafe, adapted from the bestselling novel of the same name, legendary Joey Smallwood hustles to build the “great small nation” of Newfoundland, while in Kenneth T. Williams’ Café Daughter, based on the life of Senator Dr. Lillian E. Quan Dyck, a young Chinese-Cree woman in 1960s Saskatchewan learns to embrace both sides of her identity.
Great scripts and actors thinking fast on their feet have made Plays & Pie a crowd favourite. Plus, we’ll ply you with desserts!
