Every year, the Saskatchewan Playwright’s Centre presents a festival of new plays that alternates between Regina and Saskatoon. The plays aren’t actually being mounted in a theatrical sense, but there is a dramaturge (in 2016 it’s Nina Lee Aquino) and four directors who work with the playwrights to polish their plays, which are then give staged readings.

The 2016 Saskatchewan Festival of New Plays is being held May 9-14 at Neutral Ground Art Centre (1856 Scarth St.). You can find out more on the SPC website,  but one highlight promises to be an opening night reception at the gallery on May 9 at 8 p.m. which will feature five collaborations between five dancers/choreographers and five playwrights/theatre artists.
