10 Minute Plays for Jane’s Walk – In partnership with Theatre Junction, a special 10 year anniversary project was implemented to encourage community-based groups to create a 10-minute theatre piece that celebrated a Calgary neighbourhood.  Five groups have been selected and assigned to neighbourhoods. 

  • On Saturday, May 6: Each group will perform their piece at Theatre Junction GRAND.
  • On Sunday, May 7: Each group will perform their piece in their assigned neighbourhood that inspired their piece.
