  • 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. 

  • A Look into Theatre’s FutVRe by Carly B. Johnson

    This piece, A Look into Theatre’s FutVRe by Carly B. Johnson, was originally published on HowlRound Theatre Commons (, on April 18, 2019. Johnson explores the possibilities of burgeoning VR and AR technology to expand upon and enhance theatrical experiences.

Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
