The Play Reading Series: Held to the Fire by Jennifer Platts-Fanning

Local PEI playwrights will have their plays read at Watermark Theatre this August as part of the theatre's Play Reading Series. The final play is Jennifer Platts-Fanning's Held to the Fire

Actors from the Watermark acting company, with scripts in hand, will read the plays to an audience. This allows the playwrights to further develop their work. 

Jennifer Platts-Fanning's ultimate goals for writing Held to the Fire are twofold. Firstly, she hopes people struggling with bipolar will feel represented, understood and heard. Secondly, she hopes those outside the disorder will have a better understanding of this life-changing illness. The main character, Phoenix, is spinning, caught in her own maelstrom. Inner demons threaten to dismantle her life. A lover, a mother, a woman saddled with a frenzied mind, she journeys from constellation mythologies to moon gardening, yurts to communing with Death. A raw and unveiled window into the dark depths of human consciousness.

The play reading takes place at 1:30 pm on August 22.

Tickets at www.watermarktheatre.com. Watermark Theatre is located at 57 Church Hill Ave in North Rustico.
