How to Read a Play


No time to read a novel? Miss being in the complex world of someone’s imagination? Switch it up and a read a play!

Come out and get some tips on how to read a play.

Don’t worry… it ain’t Shakespeare.

Plays by Catherine Banks have been performed across Canada and include It Is Solved By Walking, Bone Cage, Three Storey, Ocean View, and Bitter Rose, which aired on Bravo! Canada. It Is Solved By Walking was translated into Catalan by Tant per Tant, and was one of three Canadian plays to tour Catalonia in 2012. Her newest play, Miss n’ Me, is about a small town hairdresser who steals her husband’s plumbing van to drive to New York to meet American rapper, Missy Elliot. Catherine is currently adapting Ernest Buckler’s novel, The Mountain and the Valley, for the stage.

It’s been 10 years since we have been lucky enough to have Catherine Banks drop by the library and we are excited to welcome her back! Who better to share her insights on this topic than this award-winning playwright? Come enjoy an evening with Catherine and leave inspired by what promises to be an inspiring presentation and discussion.
