2015-2016 season:

 

The Live Audio Workshops

 
 

This fall the Next Folding Theatre Company will continue producing their Live Audio Workshop Series, in which new scripts by Canadian artists are workshopped and then read and recorded in front of a live Fredericton audience. This year’s featured scripts include Andrew Titus and Jeremy Fowler’s Seeds, Sarah Higgins’ family [Sign], and Brandon Hicks’ An Event in Donahue Field. .

The plays chosen this year stand out in terms of range of theme, style, and dramatic content. While Fowler and Titus’ Seeds examines the bizarre workings of morality and sanity in a not-too-sane society, Hicks’ An Event in Donahue Field is a very New Brunswick-feeling political satire. Higgins’ family drama [Sign] rounds out the trio, reminding us of how theatre can show us how to think with our hearts.

All three scripts are previously unproduced original works written by local playwrights.

Curated by NFTC veteran Brandon Hicks, the Live Audio Workshops offer the audience a chance to enjoy great beer as they listen to some amazing local writing. This year`s audio workshop will be held in the Auditorium at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre on November 4th, 2015 @ 7:00pm. Admission is 10$. .

Jordan Stewart’s Back to Zero is a detective story for cosmonauts, archaeologists and astrologers. Two disillusioned detectives race against the clock to solve a homicide in their city, as their own personal lives come into focus and unravel. As these patrons of a 24-hour city diner attempt to survive a nightscape of mind-bending games and intrigue, the sense of something bigger attempts to engulf them all. To make matters worse, out on the street corner, some kids keep creating really bad performance art.

Our mainstage production, Back to Zero is an original Canadian two-act play adapted by Ryan Griffith, featuring material by acclaimed Saint John novelist, Jordan Stewart. The play will be directed by NFTC alum Jean-Michel Cliche, and will be play March 9-12th in Fredericton, NB.
