Playwriting Circle Showcase

Thank you so much for attending the Showcase and supporting emerging playwrights who self-identify with disability!

The Playwriting Circle Showcase took place on Saturday, January 14, 2023 via Zoom and featured excerpts of scripts by ten playwrights read by professional actors.

Since October 2022, ten writers and emerging playwrights across Canada gathered virtually every Saturday to learn about the playwriting process and work on new material, with facilitation and dramaturgical support from Natasha Nadir. With a focus on story, dramatic action, character and dialogue, our Fall Playwriting Circle participants also regularly shared their writing and received ongoing feedback in preparation for this public reading with professional actors. We’re so excited to see what these talented writers will create next!
