Help us bring the new Roxy to life

On January 13, 2015 Theatre Network lost their home of The Roxy Theatre – which left a hole in the arts community and on 124 Street in Edmonton.

Now, Theatre Network is working to bring a New Roxy Theatre back where it belongs.

We need your generosity to Rebuild the Roxy Theatre. With your financial support the New Roxy will rise from the ashes!

Works in Progress Series

Theatre Network invites you to Works in Progress

Theatre Network’s Works in Progress is a unique opportunity to join Canadian playwrights as they lead live development sessions for recently commissioned work, prior to the premieres at The New Roxy Theatre. Each session is different and reflects the unique creative process of each playwright; sharing research, reading scenes, and discussing the evolution of their plays. 

It’s free to register to each Works in Progress showing, however we encourage donations to support the presentations. Once registered, a streaming link will be sent closer to the event(s) of your choice. 

Click here to register for any (or all!) of the scheduled sessions.

If you missed Agnes: The Serendipitous Journey, you can watch it here.

17-year-old Joan is stuck in family of brothers with substance abuse and dead end jobs on the oil fields. She suffers night terrors – visions of devastation so terrible she wakes up screaming. Joan is prescribed medication. She joins a school climate crisis protest and, inadvertently, she makes an impassioned speech that ends up on the local news. This angers her father and he kicks her out. Joan heads for the city. During a protest she curses out Thomas, a young, rich oil executive who is as obsessive as she is. She convinces him that what she sees in her mind’s eye is real…but Thomas’ boss is not happy. Joan knows that Joan of Arc was burned at the stake, put there by the very people she helped save, but Joan believes the world has changed since the 15th century. Has it?

Agnes: The Serendipitous Journey by Eugene Stickland

Despite her Canadian roots, Agnes Martin remains largely unknown in Canada, outside of the visual arts community. Agnes is a theatrical look at the life of the Canadian-born artist Agnes Martin, incorporating voice/text in the form of dialogue – a reminiscence, perhaps – between an older and a much younger version of Agnes.
