You want to make new theatre. We have a program for you.
In the spotlight at PTC:
We believe in the creative impulses of our artists. Help PTC say, “Yes, let’s” to new Canadian plays by WrightSpace 2018 playwrights Barbara Adler, Tai Amy Grauman, Robert Hamilton and Yvonne Wallace. Our goal is to raise $3000 by November 15 to ensure these artists have cultural consultants, designers, actors and space to dream! Donate at CanadaHelps.org today.
Where does our food come from? Who grows it? Who is nourished by it? Join playwright Pedro Chamale for words and music from his play-in-progress that brings temporary foreign farm workers centre stage – the unseen people who plant, tend, and harvest. Share food and stories in a family-friendly event that reveals the links in Canada’s food chain.
Can developing an autobiographical play be legitimate research? Tetsuro Shigematsu holds up his play “Empire of the Son” to the academic lens for consideration.
Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
WRIGHTSPACE: IT STARTS WITH THE ARTIST. Yvonne Wallace and Tai Amy Grauman will be performing their works in Native Earth Performing Arts’s Weesageechak Begins to Dance festival (http://bit.ly/Weesageechak31) November 14-24, 2018.

Today is International Artist Day! #InternationalArtistDay. Celebrate by donating to PTC's WRIGHTSPACE: IT STARTS WITH THE ARTIST Campaign. For Robert Hamilton’s memoir piece “Our Story: Coming out in the time of HIV and AIDS”, he will be mining local history, such as AIDS Vancouvers 30.30 campaign, and connecting with the Vancouver community via organizations like Positive Living BC. Please support Robert’s journey toward his new play.
