Rover Dramawerks  ...theatre off the beaten path. Live Professional Theatre in Downtown Plano
Meet the Artists - June 19

Rover Dramawerks Hosts
Stephen Massicotte, Canadian Playwright
and Duncan Larkin, Philadelphia Painter


In his first visit to Texas, award winning Canadian playwright
Stephen Massicotte

will hold a conversation with the audience on
Saturday, July 19th at 3:30 p.m.

after the 2:00 p.m. matinee performance of the regional premiere of his play Mary's Wedding. The discussion will take place at the Cox Building Playhouse, 1517 H Avenue in Plano (next to the Courtyard Theater).

Mr. Massicotte will also be honored at a reception at the Art Centre of Plano (three blocks from the Cox Building) following the 8:00 p.m. evening performance on July 19th.

At these events, Mr. Massicotte will be joined by director Lisa Devine and artist Duncan Larkin, whose World War I paintings were a primary inspiration for her vision of the play. Those paintings can be found at http://duncanlarkin.com/roads/, under the World War One Paintings and Drawings link.

Stephen Massicotte has written several award-winning plays including A Farewell to Kings, Pervert, The Emperor of Atlantis, and the popular Star Wars-inspired Boy's Own Jedi Handbook series. He has also written screenplays for the feature films Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning and The Dark. Mr. Massicotte has a BFA in Drama from the University of Calgary. His latest play The Oxford Roof Climber's Rebellion has just recieved the 2007 Canadian Author's Assocation
award for Best English-Language Play For Adults!


A self-proclaimed history buff, Mr. Massicotte will round out his first visit here with a road trip to the most famous battle scene in Texas. As the Canadian put it, "I can't go all the way down there and NOT see the Alamo!" So while, yes, even he thought it a bit over the top when he saw a map of Texas (it's big, ya know), and tried to back out of it to spare us the trouble, we are off to the Alamo at the first of the week!

To arrange interviews with the playwright, the artist, cast, or director, please contact Carol M. Rice, Artistic Director of Rover Dramawerks.
