DIGITAL NOW! A FESTIVAL FOR WEARY HEARTS Begins February 10

Inspired by the desire to create opportunities for Canadian playwrights to strengthen their skills for storytelling in a digital space, timeshare performance, with the support of the Canada Council, presents Digital NOW! a festival for weary hearts, a fundraiser for PAL Canada Foundation.

Created by Briana Brown & Janelle Hanna, this free four-day festival runs from February 10 to 13, 2022 at www.afestivalforwearyhearts.com with a suggested donation to PAL Canada, an organization working to alleviate the consequences of poverty, isolation, and housing challenges among elder members of Canada's arts and entertainment community.

With playwrights of all ages, from teenagers to more established artists, Digital NOW! a festival for weary hearts features five short theatre pieces (15 - 30 minutes) performed for a live digital audience. With a focus on curiosity and experimentation each piece explores the state of relationships through the lens of the past two years of the pandemic.
