FIREWORKS BONUS EVENTS!

One of the goals of the FireWorks Festival is to “pull back the curtain”, to provide our audience with insights into the process of creating theatre, of producing new original plays, and so we invite you to join us for special bonus events:

Wednesday November 9 – Opening Night Reception: Meet the actors and production team in the lobby at the end of the show on opening night. Bar open. Light refreshments served.

Friday November 11 at 7 pm – Panel Discussion: Koom Kankesan, author of Panic Button and a new novel The Tamil Dream, Thursica Kovinthan, Tamil refugee, now completing a PhD in education focussing on post-conflict education, gender equality, and teaching refugee children, Amra Ghouse, Sri Lankan native of mixed ancestry and member of Sri Lanka Without Borders, promoting dialogue and cross-community engagement between Sri Lanka’s diaspora communities in Canada. Come early to learn about the Sri Lankan conflict and what it means to be an immigrant from a war-torn country, then stay to see the show.

Saturday November 12 following the Matinee – Talk Back: Writer and director discuss their artistic process and answer your questions about the play and the production.
