In the spotlight at PTC:

  • (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.

  • Talking about Mx with Joanna Garfinkel and Lili Robinson

    Lili Robinson is the creator/playwright of Mx, the project that won our hearts and minds in the 2019 Fringe New Play Prize competition.  As we prepare for the launch of this new work on September 6 and as we solicit entries for FNPP 2020, we asked Project Dramaturg Joanna Garfinkel to interview Lili about how she perceives the process from this point just before final rehearsals begin.Joanna Garfinkel


  • Call for Applications: Fringe New Play Prize 2020

    The Vancouver Fringe Festival and PTC are calling for applications for the eighth year of the Fringe New Play Prize. Through the Fringe New Play Prize, PTC and the Vancouver Fringe offer BC artists a leg up in the process of creating and producing with material support. BC writers and producing teams with a project underway for the 2020 Fringe season are encouraged to submit. 

Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
