On Saturday, September 26, join Shakespeare In Action, our programming partner at Artscape Weston Common, for a free digital workshop reading of Nona’s Malaikai, written and directed by Katia Cafe-Febrissy. The staged reading will be broadcasted live via the Zoom conferencing platform at 7 pm from the Rockport Performance Hall.
The new short play, Nona’s Malaika, is a futuristic comedy where the very opinionated smartphone and laptop of a 16-year old girl realize they are no longer the centre of attention of their owner, a teen struggling with her mental health. The play will feature actors Malindi Ayienga, Amanda Cordner and Matt Nethersole. The performance will be followed by a talkback session with the director and the artistic team and a local community expert on youth, social media engagement, and mental health challenges in the York South – Weston Community.
This new digital theatre initiative by Shakespeare In Action kicks off their Fall season of programming which will include a mix of digital and in-person workshops and classes for children, adults and seniors.
To attend the free staged reading, please register via Eventbrite.
