Event Description


we're back!!!

Come one, come all to this fundraiser in support of the programming and work of APN. 

WHat do you mean showdown?

Last year we collected a selection of winning Alberta Playwriting Competition (APC) plays from its long history. This year we'll be creating new plays on the fly, resulting in one final winning play - the winner of the night's SHOWDOWN!

Did someone mention a raffle, snacks and cash bar?!

Yes, yes we did mention that!

Between each of the quick-fire play readings you will get the chance to vote on the plays you want to see more of while also enjoying some evening snacks and maybe buying a drink or two (..or three!) from the cash bar. This in-between time is perfect to meet someone new, chat with your friends about this crazy fun event and buy a raffle ticket to our wine and theatre raffle!
