“Telling Tales Out of School” – original monodramas
Dec 6 @ 1:00 pm – 12:00 am

Third- and fourth-year student playwrights and dramaturgs in Professor Judith Rudakoff‘s Playwriting and New Play Dramaturgy courses present Telling Tales out of School, a series of short, original “monodramas” inspired by members of Toronto’s theatre community.

Through research, personal interviews and observation, the rising young playwrights generate  – and the dramaturgs help to develop – characters and situations that draw on the essence of their interviewee – often with surprising results!

Theatre community members who inspired the monodramas this year include York University Theatre Professors Belarie Zatzman, Michael Greyeyes, staff member Rachel Katz and others, plus Toronto artists Viv Moore, Joseph Jomo Pierre, Darren O’Donnell, and more.

Admission is free but voluntary donations are encouraged. Proceeds will go to a designated charity. In previous years, collected funds have been donated to Oxfam through the purchase of useful and sustainable gifts for communities the world over.
