  • PTC Announces WrightSpace 2019

    This year’s PTC WrightSpace residency (January 10-19, 2020) welcomes Catherine Joell MacKinnon to Vancouver to develop her bilingual (ASL-English) play, Inaudibility World.

  • PTC Announces Block A Participants 2019

    We are pleased to announce that, once again, the number of playwrights submitting to Block A, PTC’s popular program for emerging writers, has been plentiful, so four sessions are being convened, two in the fall and two in winter.

Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
