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 (virtually) as they lead live-streamed 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.

Live-streamed on Sunday, March 28

Today 17-year-old Emma is setting up her high school science experiment using saliva from the family dog, Axel. Her half-brother, Danny, turns 25 today and when he gets home from work there’ll be a family party. Violet, Emma’s mom, is making a birthday cake but she’s mad because someone ate the jam she planned to use. Danny and Emma’s father, Winston, just bought a brand new fan but it’s not working and the June heat wave is relentless.

Agnes: The Serendipitous Journey by Eugene Stickland

Live-streamed on Sunday, March 28

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.
