"GET YOUR GOAT"
Tom Cone: Introductory Lecture
Thursday January 20th, 2011
11:30 to 1 p.m
During his Writer-in-Residence stay at Capilano University, Tom Cone will form a company of student writers, directors, and actors who will write, direct and perform a series of 5-minute plays. These will be staged in the Arbutus Theatre this spring. Discussions will follow each performance.
On Thursday, January 20th, Tom Cone will present a talk titled "Get Your Goat," an introduction to the 5-minute play project. During this session, interested creative writing students can sign up to be part of this project (first preference will be given to students who haven’t before participated.) To be part of this project, you must attend this talk!
This is a unique opportunity for creative writing students to create and develop a short play with an established playwright, and see that work performed by theatre students live before an audience. Don’t miss it!
