NOW Magazine - Fringe - - Fringe preview 25 things you can’t miss -

Whether you’re an as­pir­ing play­wright try­ing to fin­ish that script, a mid-ca­reer artist stumped by things like bud­gets and taxes, or sim­ply a cu­ri­ous the­atre lover, there’s some­thing for ev­ery­one at this year’s eclec­tic daily (and did we men­tion free?) Tent Talks se­ries. In­ti­mate and friendly, the se­ries fea­tures a great lineup of guests and top­ics. Cana­dian Stage’s in­no­va­tive artis­tic di­rec­tor, Matthew Jocelyn, is on hand July 4; a panel hi­lar­i­ously called Please Don’t Start A The­atre Company, fea­tur­ing Ais­linn Rose, Julie Tep­per­man (pic­tured), Beatriz Pizano and oth­ers, might con­vince you to do the op­po­site (July 5); two of the best direc­tors, pe­riod, Kelly Thorn­ton and Kelly Straughan, talk about women in the in­dus­try (July 7); and the­atremak­ers and for­mer arts jurors Margo Charl­ton, Lynda Hill, Ja­son Maghanoy and John Van Burek dis­cuss the grant­ing process (July 13).

Oh, and NOW’s Glenn Sumi sits down to in­ter­view di­rec­tor Amos Craw­ley and writer Peter Genoway, the first-time play­wright who won this year’s Fringe New Play Contest (see story, page 8), on July 10.
