Playwright Michele Riml talks to Joseph Planta about her new play Poster Boys, currently playing at the Arts Club on Granville Island until 26 April 2008, as well as her career as a writer.


Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.

Playwright Michele Riml joins me now. Her latest play Poster Boys is playing at the Arts Club’s Granville Island Stage until the 26th of April. It is the story of Caroline who casts her ex-fiancé and his new boyfriend in a bank ad she’s putting together. It explores love, marriage and the fear of flying humorously, and examines how advertising insinuates itself into the most personal corners of our lives, and how authenticity is often manufactured. We’ll discuss the play and more. www.artsclub.com is the website where more information can be found, as well as how to buy tickets. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Michele Riml; Good morning, Ms. Riml.
