The Edmonton and area members of the Playwrights Guild of Canada are pleased to announce the ninth of their SCRIPT SALON events. SCRIPT SALON showcases some of the most talented theatre writers in the region with new plays ripe for production read by professional actors in the elegant setting of Holy Trinity Anglican Church.

Presented the first Sunday of every month with a different play by a different playwright featured every time, SCRIPT SALON is a bounteous buffet of sizzling comedy, drama, romance and adventure forged by the power of imagination.

On Sunday January 4 at 7:30 PM SCRIPT SALON will present the first act of Chris Craddock’s adaptation of the Miriam Toews’ bestselling novel IRMA VOTH.

THE STORY:Irma is a 19 year old Canadian Mennonite living in a colony in Mexico. Her family left Canada six years ago, under circumstances that were never made clear to her. Coming of age in Mexico, Irma falls in love with a Mexican boy, earning a cold shoulder from her own people. Irma’s husband leaves her, and soon she is utterly alone, until a rag-tag film crew hires her to translate for them and Irma, for the very first time, begins a relationship with something the rest of us take for granted.

Admission is free although donations are accepted. Refreshments provided. Parking is free.
