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!

Playing Bare

This is a damn good play about theatre life and it is side-splittingly funny.

The Montreal Mirror

Witty, prickly and fresh, Playing Bare is a mordant satire on the relationship between theatre and life. An accomplished actress is on the verge of a nervous break down as she directs Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. In her deranged effort to expose the emptiness of playing fictional characters, she casts the lead roles with a pair of non-actors whose lives mirror those of the characters they play. Her search for the ultimate theatrical experience – life becoming art –­ takes the action in hilarious and insightful directions.

” For all its comedy the play is an eloquent, passionate tribute to actors and it celebrates theatre by paying tribute to Godot, one of its most brilliant gems.” – Allan Fletcher
