In the Face of It – Dramatic Sketches at Sho Studios
November 8, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - November 9, 2019 @ 9:30 pm
In The Face of It – Dramatic Sketches featuring six theatre groups performing six original dramatic short plays based on photographs from Windsor photojournalist Douglas Macellan’s debut 2019 book release, takes place at Sho Studios’ Roth Centre For The Performing Arts on November 8 & 9, 2019.
Local photojournalist Douglas Macellan’s first book, In the Face of It, published by Black Moss Press in April 2019, features photographs and stories from African countries and across Canada over MacLellan’s thirty five year photojournalism career.
MacLellan is a Windsor, Ontario based photographer. He was the official photographer at the Hockey Hall of Fame and Toronto International Film Festival, covered health and social issues in various African countries for over a decade before concentrating on projects about marginalised individuals in the Windsor area.
The book was produced by students in the University of Windsor Publishing Practicum and overseen by Marty Gervais, the course teacher and Black Moss Press publisher.
Six playwrights selected one photograph each from the book and wrote an original sketch to be performed and produced by four Windsor area theatre companies, and two others from Fort Erie and Toronto. Playwrights and theatre companies include John Conlon (Ghost Light Players), Michael J. Krym (Edge Productions), Ja Morneau (Bloomsbury House), Karen McDonald (Tall Tale Theatre Co.), Shawn Wright (Dominion Repertory Company), and Alexander Steele Zonjic (Thorn Theatre Projects).
Showtime is 8pm each night.
Tickets are $25 each.
