One Act Play Festival

One Act Play Festival

Rural Root will be hosting the Eastern Ontario Drama League (EODL) One Act Play festival on November 3 and 4 2017.

NOTE: Friday’s session is SOLD OUT. Tickets still available for Saturday.

EODL holds this festival every year, but with Canada’s 150 birthday happening the same year, the focus is on Canadian playwrights, and Rural Root has chosen our entry into the festival, Still Stands The House. Theatre companies from all over eastern Ontario will be attending and entering their one act plays. The festival is comprised of 3 sessions, Friday evening at 7, Saturday afternoon at 1 and Saturday evening at 7. Each session consists of 3 one-act plays. Tickets are $20 per session or $50 for a 3 session pass. We will also be offering dinner on Saturday for $30 at Eagle Creek Golf and Country Club, and an Awards Brunch on Sunday for $30 at the Diefenbunker – Canada’s Cold War Museum. Tours of the Diefenbunker are available for $14.50. Choose all your options during checkout after purchasing your tickets!
