Lane's Week, March 25, 2013

A Week in the Nation's Theatre
by Chris Lane

Seasons announced: 
Montreal’s Segal Centre for Performing Arts, now officially supported by the Harper government, has announced its 2013-2014 season. Alongside music, dance and other productions, their mainstage theatre shows include big-name productions such as Othello, Glengarry Glen Ross and Ain’t Misbehavin’. Audiences also get the chance to see The Seagull at the Segal. Montreal’s Festival Transamériques has announced the lineup for this year’s festival, which will open May 22. Over in Toronto, Factory Theatre has also announced their next season. Three out of their four shows will be world premieres, including the stage adaptation of Yann Martel’s Beatrice & Virgil. 

Hats off to: 
Madeleine Boyes-Manseau and Pierre Brault, both of Ottawa, who are the recipients of the RBC Emerging Artist Award, bestowed by the Great Canadian Theatre Company.

Get those applications in: 
If you’re female and new to playwriting, and would like a financial boost for your new work, then apply for the Cayle Chernin Award before April 5.
