COMMUNITY PLAY REUNION

Ten years ago, in celebration of Carnegie’s 100th anniversary, the neighbourhood was invigorated by the two week presentation of In the Heart of a City: The Downtown Eastside Community Play at the Japanese Hall. Over eighty performers from the community performed to eight sold out houses and standing ovations. The Heart of the City Festival is built on this legacy. Join cast and crew and other community participants for an opportunity to socialize, catch up, compare stories, and watch a short film on the play. With words from Michael Clague about his experiences as Director of the Carnegie Centre during the making of the Community Play. If you weren’t involved in the Community Play please feel welcome to attend as sharing is a big part of remembering. Refreshments provided. Everyone is welcome! Free
