The Calgary Gay History Project is happy to be collaborating again with Third Street Theatre to shine a light on our city’s queer history. Third Street Theatre recently commissioned playwright Natalie Meisner to craft a play based on our research.
Going through the Project’s website, she zeroed in on Everett Klippert’s dramatic story and his role in Canada’s decision to decriminalize homosexuality in 1969. Cleverly, the play is titled “69” and Third Street is inviting you to be part of the process!
Join us monthly (January 22, Feburary 19 & March 18) to witness newly drafted scenes by Natalie at Loft 112, the community literary arts space in the East Village.
Enjoy happy hour brews from Village Brewery & The Naked Leaf and seasonal treats from Sidewalk Citizen Bakery as local actors read scenes from the play.
Stick around and let us know what you think, plus collect the scenes and make them into your very own limited edition draft!
Admission by donation. Facebook Event Page: here.
