Playwright Dave Carley to host fundraising performance of his play After You at Papermill Theatre
  
Renowned Canadian playwright Dave Carley will be at the Papermill Theatre on Tuesday, June 3 for a performance of his play, After You. Performed by Todmorden’s resident theatre company, East Side Players, this special presentation is a fundraiser to support the establishment of a playwright-in-residence program at Todmorden Mills, which is planned for fall 2008.

The Todmorden Mills Heritage Museum and Arts Centre Community Management Board invites the public to meet and mingle with Dave Carley at a post-performance reception featuring prize draws, complimentary refreshments and a cash bar.

Carley’s plays have been produced in Canada, the United States and around the world. His works include: Writing with our Feet; Taking Liberties; After You; The Last Liberal; and an adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Edible Woman. His drama Orchidelirium premiered in 2004 and received three Dora nominations, including one for Best New Play. His show, Conservatives in Love, was a sell-out hit at the 2007 Toronto Fringe. For more information, visit Carley’s website at http://www.davecarley.com.

After You is a two-act drama about cousins Adele and Jean who return to their family cottage on Lake Kawartha for one last time. Adele is dying and Jean, who cares for her, is determined that her cousin’s last summer will end with grace. But too many memories intrude as the pair relives the summer of 1938 when one young man determined the paths of their lives.

East Side Players is one of Toronto’s longest-established community theatre groups, engaging audiences for almost 40 years. Performing at Todmorden Mills since the 1970s, East Side Players has produced more than 175 shows, including comedies, dramas, mysteries, thrillers and even original musical revues.
