Embrace Theatre and
Theatre Howl are remounting The Wild Dog Waits on the Concrete Path by Nathan Howe for a tour in 2018. The playwright will not be reprising his role, so we are searching for an actor (of any gender) to take on the part.

Emma Thorpe is so jazzed to join this incredibly hardworking and talented team, and watch them play. Emma recently received her BFA Acting from the U of S, is a graduate of the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts, and has her intermediate certification from Fight Directors Canada. Emma has choreographed fights for Look/See (Theatre Howl), The Clockmaker (Neverending Highway/Embrace Theatre), and Tightrope (Tightrope Collective). When not fighting people with fists and very blunt swords, Emma can likely be found stage managing shows like Lungs (Fire in the Hole Productions), Willow Road (Paper Cranes for Charlotte), Two Corpses Go Dancing (Two Unruly Gentlemen) The Brothers Grimm (Saskatoon Opera in Schools), and Our Country’s Good (Greystone Theatre).
