Honourable mention for Jennifer Wise play

The Moons of Jupiter, a play by theatre historian and Department of Theatre professor Jennifer Wise, received honorable mention as a finalist in this year’s Herman Voaden National Playwriting Competition. She wrote the play after being approached by Dr. Sara Ellison (physics and astronomy) about making a contribution to the International Year of Astronomy—a global celebration of the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s first telescopic observations. The Moons of Jupiter looks at the family dynamics between Galileo and his children. The biennial nation-wide open competition—named for Herman Voaden, a Canadian playwright, director, theatrical innovator and lifelong champion of Canadian culture—is one of the country’s most important awards for playwriting.
