  playRites exposes emerging artistsPDF files may take a moment to load

Bob White, artistic director of Alberta Theatre Projects, has seen the playRites festival start from its infancy. He helped it through its toddler years, its terrible teens and now to its current incarnation as the hip young adult of the Canadian theatre scene. Sadly, this is his last playRites, as he leaves ATP at the end of the year.

"It's mixed emotions for sure," laments White. "I came here for the second festival and this is my 23rd festival so you can do the math. That's 22 festivals that I've been to."
