Play a part in the future of theatre
Playwrights take the biggest risks in theatre – to imagine a new world and bring it to life and to convince people to support their work before it even exists. This process of writing and crafting a play takes a tremendous investment of time – often two to three years alone. Without someone to join them in that risk and journey with financial support, dramaturgical expertise and a community of collaborators, many playwrights’ voices will never be heard. At PTC we dive deeply into the new worlds they create, and help them expand the boundaries of their playwriting and theatre-making by bringing together creativity, experimentation and passion that goes from page to stage. Over the past four decades, our work and in-house expertise at PTC has seeded a new generation of theatre-makers and storytellers that are now emerging with world-class, award- winning work that is changing the way we think about theatre and about the world. With your support, we can continue to cultivate a community where emerging and established playwrights have the support they need to craft the powerful and extraordinary stories that will more deeply connect us to the world and to each other. Join us and set the stage for new and innovative work by Canadian playwrights.
