The CCTC is excited to help welcome celebrated Canadian theatre maker Elyne Quan back to Edmonton, her hometown. Elyne, president of Playwrights Guild Canada, is in the area for the upcoming Playworks Ink conference, and our friends at Theatre Alberta have organized a session where theatre enthusiasts can gather to hear Elyne read some of her work and then ask questions. The event is free and open to the general public.
