KWLT was born in 1935. The first season contained three shows: first came a double header of J.M. Barrie plays, The Twelve-Pound Look and Shall We Join the Ladies in November 1935. Shaw’s The Devil’s Disciple, in March of 1936, was our first ever brush with the world of drama festivals, with the adjudicator for the Dominion Drama Festival complimenting the production. The first season closed out with W. Somerset Maugham’s The Circle in May 1936.
So why the talk about our first year? Because this year, our staged readings will feature the plays of our very first season finishing with:
May 21 - W Somerset Maugham's The Circle
The readthru for participants will be held on on May 15.
Directed by Adrienne Dandy, the staged readings are a low-pressure way to feed your theatre addiction. We'll be looking for both actors and an audience (not to mention some stage managers), so stay tuned!
