Playwriting Circle Showcase

Enjoy excerpts from ten emerging playwrights who self-identify with disability!

Since October 2022, ten writers and emerging playwrights across Canada have gathered virtually every Saturday to learn about the playwriting process and work on new material, with facilitation and dramaturgical support by 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!

Join us in supporting new talent by attending the Playwriting Circle Showcase!
