In the spotlight at PTC:

  • PTC focuses WrightSpace 2019/20 on Deaf theatre

    PTC is convening our thirteenth annual 10-day residency, WrightSpace, in Vancouver, BC, in January of 2020. This year, we are interested in creating an opportunity for creative exchange with Deaf artists.

  • Call for Submissions to Block A 2019/20

    Playwrights Theatre Centre (PTC) is calling for submissions for our most popular program for emerging artists:  Block A. Block A is for artists who write for all kinds of performance, including script driven theatre, from spoken word to performance art to songs – we’ve even had a few screenwriters. We’re looking for writers who see craft as a tool for expressing their imaginations. 

  • (Not) My Mother’s Tongue

    In October of 2018, Reneltta Arluk and Patti Flather took part in a research project facilitated by Nightswimming’s Pure Research wing. They were interested in discovering how languages, specifically Indigenous languages known to few people, could be part of  theatrical presentations. They created and refined several live experiments to carry out over a few days. Kathleen Flaherty interviewed Reneltta and Patti about the project.

Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
