THE QUÉBEC ENGLISH-LANGUAGE PLAYWRIGHTS’ UNIT

Reflecting The English-Language Communities And Diversity Of Québec On Stages Across The Province

Infinithéâtre’s The Unit is comprised of a group of seven wildly talented playwrights six of whom were each sponsored by a different English-language Québec theatre and one of whom was sponsored by a theatre in St. John’s Newfoundland. Playwrights from across Québec were invited to submit an early draft of a play they were currently writing and an independent selection committee handpicked the final members of The Unit from an overwhelming amount of submissions.

 The Unit reflects The English-Language Communities And Diversity Of Québec On Stages Across The Province.  Members take part in bi-monthly group dramaturgical sessions and in addition their projects also benefit from the one-on-one attention of a play dramaturge. The Unit culminates in a week-long festival of staged readings aims to garner interest from artistic directors across Québec and Canada in future programming of the plays.

The Unit is run by Infinithéâtre and provides a window of input from the theatres that have a play in development.

2016 THE UNIT-Festival of Staged Readings will take place September 11th-17th in four different theatres in and around Montréal (schedule below)
