TRAILING ARBUTUS
by Hope Thompson
It’s 1977 and world-renowned British flower arranger, Timothy Arbutus, performs to sold-out crowds at Toronto’s O’Keefe Centre. Devoted fan, Mary Morton, attends every show, but when she goes backstage to present Arbutus with a gift of her love, she stumbles into a world of desire, servitude, violence…and murder.
 
NIGHT NURSE
Writers (LIFT members and non-members) can submit a script to the same email. If you are a non-member whose script it selected, you must join LIFT’s membership.
by David Aronson
Sharing a title with the 1933 black and white film, Night Nurse details the troubled life of a youngster in the throws of depression, and the lascivious nurse taking care of him. “This femme fatale will provoke, confuse and stimulate your senses, all five of them.”
 
LIFT OUT LOUD is our bi-monthly script reading series where members workshop their scripts to by professional actors and then get feedback from the acclaimed guest moderator and an audience of their peers. LIFT OUT LOUD meets bi-monthly on the first Wednesday of every other month.
