U of T Drama Festival - THIS WEEK!
The 24th Annual showcase of student work
Drama Fest 2016Hart House Theatre and the U of T Drama Coalition are proud to present the U of T Drama Festival: A Weekend of Competitive Theatre. The four nights of original one-act plays feature students from multiple colleges on the three U of T campuses and runs February 10-13, 2016.
Over 70 years since its inception, The University of Toronto Drama Festival provides a showcase for up-and-coming theatrical talent from the university's three campuses. Now in the 24th year since its revival, the festival is proud to continue the tradition of only accepting original student written plays; serving as a much needed outlet for U of T playwrights. The festival serves as an accessible avenue for U of T students to perform, direct and express their flair for the dramatic on the historic Hart House Theatre stage. It also provides an opportunity for aspiring members of the U of T drama community to get started in the professional sphere as many scripts have gone on to have further productions. The University of Toronto Drama Festival boasts a variety of famous individuals as alumni - Ted Follows, David Gardner, Don Harron, Arthur Hiller, William Hutt and Donald Sutherland - to name a few!

Maev Beaty This year's festival will be adjudicated by Maev Beaty, an alumna of the University of Toronto and the U of T Drama Festival. Maev is a theatre-maker, actor, writer, voice artist and mother. In her 17-year-long professional career she has gathered over 40 stage credits from across the country, and these have ranged from new play development to the classics. This summer she will return to for her third season at the Stratford Festival.. Maev is a multi-Dora Award winner and nine-time nominee in both performance and writing.

Elsewhere This Week
Our friends at Cart/Horse open Dalton and Company
Dalton and Company Karen has been the "woman beside the man" for almost twenty-five years, Linda wants her academic advisor to acknowledge her existence, and Randy thinks she should just notice him. The man in the centre of it all is Professor Daniel Dalton, a celebrated author and teacher of creative writing, whose awards and personality loom large. Their equilibrium is shaken when Charlie charmingly (and perhaps ominously) fumbles his way into their lives, disquieting their small office. Dalton and Company considers academia, meritocracy, and asks what it means to deserve something.

First developed by playwright Paul Dunn as part of the Tarragon Playwrights Unit, Dalton and Company is a study in control and power in a university setting. Directed by Matthew Gorman, and featuring Julia Course, Catherine Fitch, Andy Trithardt, and Marcel Stewart, Dalton and Company explores merit, sexual favoritism, and privilege.

When: Feb. 11-28, 2016
Where: The Theatre Centre, 1115 Queen St West

Listed in the Toronto Star as a 'top ticket' for the week!
