This Week in Theatre: August 7-14

There are two great festivals where you can catch some of the many artists on the rise as they preview what will (certainly one day) become the next generation of theatre styles in Toronto. Take a look at what's to come.

Summerworks Festival : This year boasts many known actors of stage and television working in juried selected entries for its 17th festival. I mentioned it last week and only mention it again because this week has a whole new crop of works showing including the Reading Series running all week in the Youth and Adult categories. Hear scripts read by professional artists in an intimate 'early stage' of the process. Stay tuned for some picks from the Festivals first weekend coming later this week.

Squiggfest Festival : Quickly becoming the new Fringe, the festival that really is still underground hosts a bevy of artistic productions starting this Thursday and running every Thursday till the end of the month.
