Play Development

Shadow Theatre is proud of our commitment to new play development. Our primary focus with this program is to work with emerging playwrights who have not yet been produced by a PACT (Professional Association of Canadian Theatre's) company as it serves both our passions and our mandate. At the same time, we continue moving our playwright-in- residence in challenging new directions. We are always actively engaged in looking for playwrights whose skills and philosophies are a good match for the company, and we are passionate about contributing in a significant way to the Canadian canon of plays. Our program differs from others in our community as we actively seek out up and coming writers with passion and a great idea.
