KAMLOOPS - The Thompson-Nicola Regional District’s Library System is hosting the second in a series of free staged readings of the one-act play Confluence by B.C. screenwriter Erin McMullan. The event takes place on Saturday, Aug. 8, from 2 to 4 p.m., at the Kamloops Library.
The play, funded by the Kamloops Art Council, is a locally inspired one-act play starring Jennilee Fraser and Nigel Beardwood.
“Each performance is equivalent to a new draft of the play,” said playwright McMullan, who has been workshopping its content with the actors and incorporating audience feedback from the first “Theatre in the Stacks” performance earlier in July.
Following the performance, the audience will be encouraged to discuss issues raised by the play; to participate in a Q&A about playwriting and the use of local settings; and to learn more about opportunities for getting involved in local community theatre.
McMullan’s writing credits include five years as writer-editor for the TV high school quiz show Reach for the Top. More recently, her work was heard in the Ewan McGregor-narrated IMAX film Humpback Whales 3D.
