In the spotlight at PTC:
Kathleen Flaherty, PTC’s Dramaturg since 2012, will retire on October 1, 2020. We celebrate her illustrious career and future endeavours.
The Vancouver Fringe Festival and Playwrights Theatre Centre are calling for applications for the ninth year of the Fringe New Play Prize. Through the Fringe New Play Prize, PTC and the Vancouver Fringe offer emerging BC theatre artists a leg up in the process of creating and producing with material support. BC writers and creative producing teams with a project underway for the 2021 Fringe season are encouraged to submit.
In PTC’s first online Unscripted on Sunday, November 1, 2020 at 7:00pm PST, join playwright Derek Chan and co-host Davey Calderon (Dramaturg, Public Engagement) as they bring the voices of Hong Kong democracy activists in Vancouver into conversation with Derek’s play-in-development, yellow objects.
Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
Congrats to all of the shortlisted Siminovitch Prize for Theatre nominees, especially Carmen Aguirre (PTC Associate 2013-16) whose groundbreaking body of work inspires and moves us! We were thrilled to be involved in the development of Carmen's "Anywhere But Here", the largest Latinx play in history to premiere on a Canadian mainstage. And happy birthday, Carmen – you are a gift to Canadian theatre.
