Live Events – Alice Munro Stories
Date posted: April 3, 2017
Throughout Alice Munro Stories we’ll host a number of events that will deepen your theatre experience or just plain astound you.
Saturday, April 15 at 11 am
Belfry Theatre, Studio A, 1291 Gladstone Avenue
Free Event. Join us in Studio A for a live talk show hosted by CBC Radio’s Gregor Craigie, featuring director Anita Rochon, actor Jennifer Wasko-Patterson, Dr Jamie Dopp (Associate Professor of Canadian Literature at UVic) and Sheila Munro (yes, Alice’s daughter).
If you can’t make it to B4Play in person, don’t worry: you can listen to these always-entertaining interviews on our website or listen to our podcasts at soundcloud.com/belfrytheatre.
Facilitated discussions – audience member to audience member – will follow every evening Mainstage performance of Alice Munro Stories (except Opening Night and Talkback Thursday). These are a great opportunity to share your thoughts and hear fellow patrons’ reactions to the production and the ideas it presents.
Thursday, April 27
