Playground: Festival of New Work

From June 6-9, 2019, Playground: Festival of New Work will feature short medium works/excerpts by emerging artists from the Waterloo Region and surrounding area.

Playground Festival of New Work challenges our region’s playwrights and theatre creators to submit original works each fall. Several writers are selected to join the Writer’s Circle, an informal group that meets over the winter months to read, discuss, and develop their scripts. This core group evolves into the production team that programs, casts, and stages collectively, preparing their works to be enjoyed by our region’s enthusiastic theatre audiences each June.

Playground explores complex subject matter, activating thought and discussion. The rules of our collective playgrounds apply well beyond the primary school years: we all must share space, take turns, take risks, and take care of our friends. And the most fun is always had when there’s a touch of danger . . .

By supporting our 2019 Playground: Festival of New Work’s ticketed shows, attending our free events, and providing valuable feedback direct to our email address, or in short surveys at our venues – audiences will continue the tradition of nurturing professional theatre craft locally – from the Playground up!
