Café Confab is a brand new interview series in which Winnipeg Free Press columnist Jen Zoratti will host lively, informal conversations about topics and trends of the day with cool, interesting newsmakers and personalities from home and abroad at the Winnipeg Free Press News Café.
Featuring everyone from community leaders to artists to policy makers, these chats will offer added context, insight and analysis to the stories and issues you’re talking about right now — and the stories and issues you will be talking about.
In the first instalment of Café Confab, Jen sat down with New York/Winnipeg playwright Alix Sobler, the brains behind Jonno, one of the most buzzed-about plays at this year’s Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival.
It’s about a famous radio host who assaults women and yes, it’s inspired by current events. They discuss the role art can play in changing societal norms around sexual assault as well as the idea that theatre should be challenging.
