You want to make new theatre. We have a program for you.
In the spotlight at PTC:
We are calling for submissions for our most popular program for emerging artists: Block A. We offer Fall and Winter cohorts with different mentors. Check it out!
PTC is convening our eleventh annual Writers’ Colony in Vancouver, BC, December 6 – 16, 2017. Playwrights from across Canada are invited to make submissions to be part of it.
The Virago Play Series is offering a bursary to support a female or femme identified playwright who is accepted to one of PTC’s two cohorts for Block A in the coming season.
Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
Happy World Fringe Day! Celebrating 70 years of edgy theatre. PTC proudly sponsors the Fringe New Play Prize with the Van Fringe (we'll soon be accepting applications) and we're connected to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 where our Company Collaboration project, Foreign Radical, appears Aug 2-27! Check out all the Fringe anniversary videos, including ours, on the Vancouver Fringe YouTube channel. #worldfringeday #fringe70 #indietheatre #newplays
