Be a Fringe artist! The Fringe New Play Prize offers a playwright or a group of devisers a free Mainstage slot at the Vancouver Fringe, eighteen months of dramaturgy, production mentorship, and rehearsal space. It is a collaboration of PTC and the Vancouver Fringe.
For three years, four writers each develop a project – and their practice – with PTC dramaturgs. Do you have an idea that will stretch you as a theatre maker? We’re looking for artists who are challenging themselves and their audiences with a new vision for the stage (or the park, or the forest, or the web…).Next round of applications TBD
Get inspired in Block A, our mentored group for emerging writers of performance. Through discussion, critiques, and writing exercises Block A provides the building blocks for writers to create works for the theatre.Call for submissions opens in June and are due in August.
Block D is for artists who help to shape, nurture and create all kinds of performance, including script-driven, hybrid forms, and physical theatre. We’re looking for creators who are already engaged in dramaturgical work and thinking, who would benefit from engaging with colleagues, and from learning new forms and tools.Call for submissions opens every two years, around November
Immerse yourself in playwriting. Each year, PTC welcomes a small group of professional Canadian playwrights to join us for a short-term residency to work on one of their projects.
A transformation of the Fringe New Play Prize, the New Play in Development Prize prepares playwright and play for its world premiere over an 18-month partnership.
In Company Collaborations, we choose projects that have a particular theatrical challenge to them – one that will push the playwright creatively and experientially and also places a new, exciting challenge in front of our own dramaturgical team. Through these Company Collaborations, our dramaturgs are stretched to truly reimagine theatre as we become a significant partner in producing these innovative, dramaturgically challenging and powerful stories.
Registration for PTC’s staff-led workshop is now closed.
Check in soon for information on the next series of workshops!
Open to submissions from across Canada, our Dramaturgical Reading Program is perfect for playwrights who are looking for a structured and critical response to their completed one-act or full-length play.Submissions accepted year-round.
