RMTC, Millennium launch Play on Words series

Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre and Millennium Library have partnered on a new lunch-hour series that will launch with a look at the making of a new production of Gone With the Wind.

Play on Words will debut Tuesday at the library’s Carol Shields Auditorium with Niki Landau, the author of a new version of the Margaret Mitchell Civil War epic. The Toronto actress/playwright will talk about the challenges of adapting such an iconic story.
