Event description

Description

Artistic Director Heather Davies directs a rehearsed reading of one of George Ryga’s most popular plays which premiered in Kamloops in 1976.

"Plougmen of the Glacier" consists of conversations between an aged prospector and a retired newspaperman, which bring about an examination of the myth of men who made the West.

Rooted in the history and exploited landscape of the Kootenays, the play juxtaposes, with comic effect, a rugged prospector and a refined journalist to examine the myth of the Old West.

Admission by donation.
