Fresh from the Island will bring new plays to King’s County this fall. Presented in partnership with Kings Playhouse, Young at Heart Theatre and Desert Island Theatre Company, Fresh from the Island will run October 14–17th at Kings Playhouse!
The Festival will feature workshops and presentations with local playwrights, open mic night, community workshops and more.
This new works festival will provide audiences with a chance to immerse themselves in the creative process by witnessing public presentations of two new works by Island playwrights. Continuing Care by Melissa Mullen and What’s Eating You? by Jay Gallant will undergo an intensive development process with professional dramaturgs from across Canada. The public is invited to take part in the creative environment at Kings Playhouse this October with an exciting four days jam-packed with events, presentations, workshops and readings by artists from a range of writing disciplines, including Scott Parsons, Julie Bull, Dave Stewart and Julie Pelissier-Lush. Kicking off the weekend will be a reading of Melissa Mullen’s play “The Man Who Saved the Songs,” which tells the story of PEI poet Larry Gorman.
The public will also be able to attend a variety of workshops covering various topics in the world of playwriting and storytelling.
