Interested in applying for this program?
PTC is convening our twelfth annual 10-day residency, WrightSpace, in Vancouver, BC, December 5-15th, 2018.
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. WrightSpace is led by PTC’s seasoned dramaturgs Heidi Taylor and Kathleen Flaherty with this year’s guest dramaturg Jiv Parasram. PTC works with each participant to create a process tailored to their play, which may include workshops with actors, dramaturgical sessions, studio work, or design consults.
This year, we are interested in focusing on documenting the emergent process of each writer that may include dramaturgy, actors, studio work, and interdisciplinary collaboration, as required by the playwright. We encourage playwrights to apply who are interested in developing a process together as well as working on their play. To facilitate that, for this year only, we wish to focus on playwrights who live in the Vancouver area. Playwright participants receive a stipend and should be available to dedicate significant periods of studio and writing time to the work during the residency.
Playwrights Theatre Centre is continuously working to make all our programs accessible. We encourage writers with a lived experience of disability to apply for all of our programs. Flexible timing and location, virtual sessions, attention to time of day and duration of work, and flexible stipend plans can all be designed with the artist to maximize creative satisfaction.

- a completed online application form,
