New Mythic
Works Series

In 2021, The Thousand Faces Festival put out a submission call to Edmonton Playwrights for short (10-20 minute) plays based in and around mythology. A blind jury then screened and selected five plays and were so excited to present workshopped versions to the Edmonton Arts Scene! Plays written by Liam Monaghan, Calla Wright, Samantha Fraughton, Kijo Gatama and Liam Salmon. Jurors included Amanda Samuelson, and Marina Mair-Sánchez.
