2015 Pipeline Play Reading Series

Every year Infinithéâtre proudly presents Québec’s newest discoveries in THE PIPELINE, an annual series of PWYC public play readings where the audience takes centre stage. Guy Sprung, Infinithéâtre’s Artistic Director, invites the public to catch the excitement and share their views.

Write-on-Q!, the now popular writing competition, draws submissions from first-time playwrights, students and established writers, including the cream of the crop of Québec playwrights. For Sprung, The Pipeline reading series has become a vital step in the process of developing new plays and making programming choices for upcoming seasons, “Audience reaction is absolutely key to this event. Where else can Montréalers participate in the creative process as we continue to produce relevant, Québécois theatre?”

The Pipeline gives the public a unique opportunity to voice their opinions and directly influence Montréal’s cultural landscape through lively talkback discussions - an important part of any play development - following each reading. Providing invaluable input for the playwrights, talkbacks allow the audience to address questions or issues that the texts generated in a relaxed, open forum with the authors, directors and actors.
