Tinkerspace Play Labs

We are committed to supporting local writers and growing new talent through our Play Labs initiative. We offer a series of focused, constructive writing meetings that culminate in a rehearsed reading by local actors, in front of a live audience. At these readings, we open up the floor to the audience and allow for a valuable period of feedback and discussion. After the live reading, writers are encouraged to continue developing their work, with the possibility of having their play fully staged and produced by Tinkerspace Theatre. My Name Is Spaceman, workshopped in a 2016 Play Lab, was awarded the 2017 Brickenden Award for Outstanding Original Script. We are delighted to announce that we have six new scripts we are workshopping during 2018.

Angel's Landing
by Eric Bernard

A father grieves the sudden loss of his daughter while immersing himself in life in a small Nova Scotia fishing village. While the colourful locals seem at first to offer distraction, his involvement in their world eventually brings him face to face with not only his daughter's unfinished story, but also his own. 

Marty and Joel and the Edge of Chaos
by Camille Intson

A single photograph ties together two evenings, thirty years apart. A physicist and a photographer's different priorities and personal ideologies clash as echoes between the past and the future reveal how the beginning and end of their romantic relationship entwine.
