Event description

Description

Read a role or just take a stroll through nature, immersed in a site-specific playreading by Shadowpath!

Starting indoors with introductions and a synopsis of the play, the group will travel on a light and easy trail through Kortright's conservation area, making two stops to hear a short scene.

At the sugar shack, enjoy maple syrup samples and then head back indoors for wine and cheese tastings during the final scene.

An innovative way to combine nature and theatre, making the most of some of York Region's most beautiful landscapes.

Interested in reading a small role? Let us know! We want to share in the creative process with you, integrating professional performers and the everyday arts enthusiast.

THE PLAY:

The Wildflower Retreat - A One Act Play in three scenes

by alex karolyi

SYNOPSIS

Keith and Carman are organizing their first trail hike (rated EASY) through the Kortright Centre. They have with them a group full of keen adventurers - some slightly more enthusiastic than others. As Keith and Carman lead the team through the woods, they come upon a sugar shack, all the while, taking in the scenery and shenanigans along the way.

This al fresco playreading combines nature and theatre, concluding with an indoor wine and cheese sampling to enjoy the final scene of the night.
