THE QUÉBEC ENGLISH-LANGUAGE PLAYWRIGHTS' UNIT
Reflecting The English-Language Communities And Diversity Of Québec On Stage
Infinithéâtre’s Unit comprises a group of wildly talented playwrights, most of whom are sponsored by a different English-language Québec theatre.
Infinithéâtre is proud to present the 2nd Cohort of our Playwrights' Unit
The fruits of our intensive labour will be on view during a week of public readings in September 2018.

We invited six Québec playwrights, developing six unique plays, each play sponsored by a different Québec English-language theatre, for a twelve-month intensive playwriting unit under the guidance of dramaturge and playwright, Alexandria Haber.
Interested in becoming a member of The Unit?
The goal of The Unit is to take an early draft of a play or project and develop it into a production-ready script. Must be a Québec writer, or a First Nations writer from anywhere across Canada. Preference will be given to writers and projects that are supported or sponsored by a production company or theatre anywhere in the world. Please display this in the form of a letter of support from said company.
Playwrights are invited to submit an early draft of a play they are currently writing and an independent committee will select the new Cohort.
Deadline for Cohort #3: TBA
For more information or questions, please contact Alexandra Maynard, Project Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
