PLAY READING SERIES - THE PIPELINE
Infinithéâtre proudly presents the winners of our Write On-Q! playwriting competition in our annual The Pipeline reading series. Audience feedback takes centre stage as Infinithéâtre invites the public to catch the excitement and share their views on plays that in many cases end up as part of our future repertoire.
Write On-Q! draws in submissions from first-time playwrights, students and from established writers including Québec's most celebrated playwrights. For Infinithéâtre’s Artistic Director, Guy Sprung, The Pipeline reading series has become a vital step in the process of developing new plays and making programming choices for Infinithéâtre's 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?" says Sprung.
The Pipeline gives the public a unique opportunity to voice their opinions and directly influence Montréal’s cultural landscape through the lively talkback discussions following each reading. These sessions provide invaluable input for the playwrights and the talkbacks allow the audience to address questions or issues that the texts generated in a relaxed, open forum with the authors, directors and actors.
