Dramaturgy in Sackville
CCTC director Kim McCaw travelled to Sackville, New Brunswick last month
to serve as dramatrug for a Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre (PARC) script development workshop of John Spurway's Help Desk.
The CCTC and PARC have dynamic history of collaboration. The above photo is actually from the 2010 PARC Playwright's Colony - the rugged ambiance is due to the event's setting in Hessler Hall, a rehearsal space/prop storage room on the Mount Allison campus. Kim is sitting with Saskatoon-based playwright Jennifer Wynne Webber, who was in Sackville as part of an exchange between PARC and the Saskatchewan Playwrights Centre.
CCTC Director Kim McCaw has been a guest dramaturg at the PARC Colony for the past four years. Two of the plays he's worked on there, The Woodcutter, and The Cave Painter, both by Don Hannah, have been produced by CCTC as part of our annual Working Title Festival. The Cave Painter featured PARC Artistic Director Jenny Munday.
