Purgatory Cinema Presents: the Wynonna Earp Writers' room!

Friday August 10, 2018

Friday night, take a peek into the Wynonna Earp Writers Room as Brendon Yorke, Shelley Scarrow, Noelle Carbone, Caitlin Fryers, Matt Doyle, and Emily Andras dissect an episode of Wynonna Earp over cocktails. The fast-talking smart-mouths behind all of your favourite Wynonna quips, dry Dolls one-liners, and romantic Wayhaught moments will give us a behind-the-scenes look at the process of writing the show.

Tickets are $15/person, available on our EventBrite page

This event is additional. It is not included with your existing pass.

Stick around afterward to join us for another episode (without the salty commentary), offered free of charge for all guests with Friday or three-day passes.

BONUS EVENT: Music Panel!

Date: TBD

Join Andrea Higgins, the head of music supervision at Arpix Media, as well as Wynonna Earp composers Peter Chapman and Rob Carli for the Earper Homestead Convention Canada exclusive music panel! Learn how Andrea chooses all those songs that we can’t get out of our heads, and how Peter and Rob compose music that creates the mood of each scene. We’ll have them answer questions about specific scenes and musical choices, as well as giving us an idea of what it’s like to work on the music side of TV and film production.

This event will be available at no additional charge to all ticket holders, but seating will be limited.
