Brave New Play Rites 2008

I'd like to invite you to the theatrical debut of my first produced play, "Daguerreotype," being put on at the Dorothy Somerset Studio Theatre as part of UBC's Brave New Play Rites Festival, running from April 2 to 6. My one-act play, directed by Lauchlin Johnston and starring UBC grads Evan Frayne and Joanna Rannelli, opens the festival. Each night of the festival, six plays will be performed, with a staged reading series being held on Saturday, April 5. Tickets are $10 ($5 if you're a student), and can be purchased through the UBC Box Office (604) 822-2678. Included below is the complete festival program. I'd love to see you there.

A selection of twelve plays will be performed in repertory, directed by student-directors, and will feature both professional and student actors.
