PGC at Toronto Fringe's Tent Talks
PGC will be well represented at Toronto Fringe's Tent Talk series, with both Sky Gilbert and Executive Director Robin Sokoloski participating. The event, with 'industry types' arguing “Theatre is dead…Long Live Theatre!” while you sit in the middle with an iced drink in your hand, is certainly a must see for anyone fascinated with what goes on behind the scenes in the theatre world.

Panel: Sky Gilbert (playwright/director/actor), Shannon Litzenberger (dancer/arts policy advocate), Daniel Brooks (Necessary Angel)
