Playwrights' Workshop Montreal


Founded in Montreal in 1963, Playwrights' Workshop was formed by a series of founders with the intention of providing development assistance for a variety of different genres and types of plays. It offers development assistance to over 200 plays per year, now. Playwrights' Workshop also participates in a variety of different programs, including one focusing on translations. It has helped develop scripts from across Canada and employed directors, actors and dramturgs fluent in at least two languages. Since its founding, it has assisted with the plays of such talents as George F. Walker, Carol Bolt, and Tomson Highway.

The University of Guelph's Archival and Special Collections is the repository for this company's archival records. This includes a series of house programs from 1963-1997.
