The pandemic may have left local stages dark, but it can’t keep the region’s playwrights from putting pen to paper or from wanting to see their words come to life. That’s where the Spokane Playwrights Salon comes in. The group is presenting works from five area playwrights, each piece directed by a local director and performed by local actors. The shows range from Bryan Harnetiaux’s Myra, a historical drama involving gender discrimination, to Pam Kingsley’s Finding Mother Courage, a dramatic comedy about aging in the acting world. Playwrights Jean Hardie, Matthew Weaver and Jeremy Urann are also featured. For descriptions of all five shows, visit the event’s Facebook page. The plays will all stream on YouTube beginning Oct. 24, when the link to the channel will appear at the link below and will remain online until Nov. 7.
