Playwrights Theatre Centre


Call for Applications: Production Coordinator, Unscripted


PTC seeks a Production Coordinator for a community event in April 2019 called Unscripted.


Unscripted is an event bringing audiences into direct relationship with the ideas, issues, and politics of playwriting. The project takes place at the beginning of April 2019. The team is designing an event to connect with youth under 12 who are part of the transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming communities, and their caretakers. This is the first outward-focused phase in a project that explores building a world where all children belong. This first phase takes the school building as its site for exploration, and will be a kid-centred event not open to the general public.
