Ship’s Company will debut the brand new ”Shipwright Sessions” this summer. From published award-winning plays to still-in-development musicals, the Shipwright Sessions give you the opportunity to hear excerpts of these works from the playwright themselves combined with a close-up look at the writer through mini-interviews led by Ship’s artistic director Richie Wilcox. The Shipwright Sessions, which are free to the public and available through Ship’s Company social media, feature Beneath Springhill: The Maurice Ruddick Story by Beau Dixon, Mind The Light by Gabrielle Papillon, Silence: Mabel and Alexander Graham Bell by Trina Davies, and Mi’kmaq Stories: Past and Present by Catherine Martin, Trevor Gould and Shalan Joudry with a reading by Shalan Joudry.
