Fringe New Play Prize
Fringe shows are the poster children for self-produced theatre – Fringe shows allow an artist or a company to develop their aesthetic and find their audience. Through the Fringe New Play Prize, PTC and the Vancouver Fringe offer BC artists a leg up in the process with material support – eight months dramaturgy, some free creation and rehearsal space, a free spot in our how-to-produce-theatre seminar series, Block P, and a free space on the Fringe Mainstage. All told, the Fringe New Play Prize is a juicy package with a $5000 value: ($800 + $1000 studio space + $3000 dramaturgy + script copying + promotion). The production costs are the responsibility of the applicant.
2017 Fringe New Play Prize Project
Setting Bones is an interdisciplinary and intergenerational performance, created by Anoushka Ratnarajah, Kamee Abrahamian, and lee williams boudakian, that explores the lives and relationships of the Berberian family. Marked by generational differences and the impacts of displacement, gender, sexuality and the desire to love each other, their stories reveal a family’s fight to grow closer to one another in the face of great loss and the myriad experiences that threaten to pull them apart.
