Playwrights Canada Press

Jump to: navigation, search

Playwrights Canada Press was created in 1984 as an imprint of the professional association of Canadian playwrights, now called the Playwrights Guild of Canada. In 2000 the Press was separately incorporated from the Guild.

For the first ten years of its existence, the Press published four to six titles of English-Canadian drama annually. They now publish roughly thirty books of plays, theatre history, and criticism each year. While located in Ontario, the Press publishes playwrights from across Canada. Playwrights Canada Press also publishes French plays by Canadian authors in English translation, and includes theatre for young audiences.

Playwrights Canada Press is a member of the Association of Canadian Publishers, the Literary Press Group, the Organization of Book Publishers of Ontario, the Canadian Association for Theatre Research, and the American Society for Theatre Research.
