Stage to Screen is a newly launched on-going series that brings some of North America’s top talent working in both theatre and film to Vancouver for an intimate one-of-a-kind experience.
The inaugural event will feature Pulitzer and Tony Award winner, David Auburn (Proof).
Bringing film and theatre together, the event will start with a screening for Auburn’s directorial debut, The Girl in the Park
(starring Sigourney Weaver and Kate Bosworth),
which he also wrote, followed by a Q&A.
After a dinner break, audiences will be treated to a live stage reading of Auburn’s play “Proof,” featuring MEG ROE as Catherine, KAYVON KELLY as Hal, LORETTA WALSH as Claire, and TOM MCBEATH as Robert.
Following the play reading, audiences will get to learn about Auburn’s experiences in the theatre, writing technique and approaches, influences, the road to writing a Pulitzer-award winning play, and much more, in an intimate moderated “In Conversation.” A portion of the evening will also be dedicated to questions from the audience.
