On The Table

An Evening of food, drink and discussion 
September 15, 2014
Red Sancastle Theatre

It was an evening of experimentation as we had women actors read from popular male-centric plays.  The discussion that followed afterwards was valuable and whole hearted as we engaged with the audience and the actors.  What makes a good story?  What makes a good character?  Is there anything gained or lost from swapping in a female for a male role?  

We all want to hear good stories about the human experience and that transcends any gender type.
