In other book-related news, Justin Rutledge heads to Banff this weekend for Wordfest. On Saturday @ 7 pm at the Banff Centre, Justin will appear on a panel with two-time Governal General’s Literary Award winner Guy Vandergaeghe, who will present his latest novel about the end of the Wild West. Stony Plain wonder Holger Peterson is the host.
Hot off his acting debut in the Michael Ondaatje play based on his novel, Divisidero, and a more recent turn on an episode of Degrassi High (OMGGGGGGG), Justin Rutledge returns to the stage to star currently in the Canadian performance debut of Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice, a modern retelling of the ancient myth of Orpheus – from the dead bride’s point of view. Justin will be playing the dead bride… Just kidding, he will be playing the hunky Greek dude in the toga. Eurydice plays Aug 4-13 at Theatre Passe Muraille Mainspace (15 Ryerson Ave, Toronto). Tickets are $15, available at 416.504.7529 or http://www.artsboxoffice.ca.
