Is the process of making great theatre a meeting of minds, a leap of faith, or a shot in the dark? Jackie Maxwell is one of North America's most respected directors, having worked with artists and companies coast to coast, including tenures as Artistic Director of Factory Theatre and the Shaw Festival. All audiences and theatre practitioners are invited to join us for a frank conversation about the art of collaboration.  


It was fabulous, inspiring and good for the artistic soul.
