PTC is a dramaturgically-focused theatre company that finds, nurtures, and advances the Canadian playwright. We develop new plays from creation through performance. We collaborate on new work with emerging and established theatre artists. Our focus is dramaturgy, development, and playmaking. Through carefully curated programs and deep conversations with artists, we transform practice and ideas. New and necessary stories take shape. Fresh ways of working, thinking and creating emerge. We foster a culture of inclusivity and aim to make PTC accessible to all artists of passion and vision. By supporting in-depth development for independent voices, we foster theatre’s role in building a society that invests in critical conversations about how we choose to live our lives.
