Playwright in a Shop was part of Sum Theatre's work as Artists in Residence in the community of Nutana. In the fall of 2015, playwrights Joel Bernbaum and Yvette Nolan spent a week in the shop windows of Foster Shoes and The Better Good on Broadway Avenue. Passersby and shoppers were invited to share their ideas and work on scripts with the playwrights. The work was projected onto a monitor facing out into the street. These plays will later be used in another part of Sum Theatre's residency, the pop-up plays.
