Festival Dionysia – Have you got your tickets yet?

UBC Players Club’s spring production, Festival Dionysia, is a festival featuring six one-act plays written and performed by local artists, whose talent is drawn largely from UBC. Local playwrights submit their original scripts in December and of the submissions, six scripts are chosen by the UBC Players Club’s Executive Team to be performed the following spring. Each year, the club tries to choose a variety of genres in accordance with a theme. This year, our theme is A Night of Love and Intrigue.

The festival works to empower emerging artists in UBC and in the greater Vancouver area, and as a result is a wonderful place for artists to meet and support one another and hone skills they already have or to try their hand at something new! In every festival, there is a chance that at least one artist working on each show – playwright, dramaturg, director, actor, technical crew member, or production manager – is doing this for the first time. Every show benefits from the fresh ideas and encouragement of the community of artists involved in putting on the show, and evolves dramatically over the course of production.   The six plays will be shown consecutively in the Dorothy Somerset Studio on UBC campus from March 11-15, 2020.   🎭 UBC Players Club presents A Night of Love and Intrigue: Festival Dionysia 2020! 🎭
