QDF MUSINGS, SPOTLIGHT ON
From September 11-17, 2016, Infinithéâtre is showcasing the work of their inaugural Playwrighting Unit. The Unit is comprised of eight playwrights who will be presenting staged readings of their new plays at theatres across Montreal and the surrounding area. The readings are free and open to the public.
QDF had the pleasure of sitting down with Stephen Orlov, the playwright, dramaturge and educator who will be showcasing his new play Birthmark at the Centaur Theatre on September 15 as part of Infinithéâtre’s inaugural playwrighting Unit. Birthmark is a dark-comedy set in 2015 that delves into the relationship of two Montreal diaspora families, one Jewish, the other Palestinian. Stephen is writing the play with the support of a Cole Foundation commissioning grant, sponsored by Teesri Duniya Theatre.
