Putting a spotlight on the next generation of Québec playwrights!

Infinithéâtre is proud to have hosted our Park 'N Play 2022 event back in October. Park 'N Play is our open air-reading series featuring the winning plays of our playwriting competition for youth, The-Write-Stuff. Québec-based playwrights aged 12-18 are asked to submit a short play for a chance to win a 500$ cash prize as well as a professional staged reading at the event.

Our Park 'N Play 2022 cast included:

∞ Dakota Jamal Wellman
∞ Sarah Talbot

With live music by Sarah Hurley

A short synopsis of our 2022 plays:

Dabble In Lemony by Ainsley Murphy is a fun and suspenseful short play, with a bit of a film noir aesthetic. It follows Willie, who was hired off the streets to supposedly test the food at a fancy restaurant owned by Salvatore Ricci, head of the Ricci family and leader of organized crime in New York.

Blame
by Kate Collins shows a young woman’s unfair police interrogation, after having been sexually assaulted at a party.

Around the World and On the Screen by Talya Chepchirchir gives audiences a glimpse into the life of a young director who is trying to write a script and make it in New York, despite severe writer’s block.

Operation : Family Troubles by 5 students from St-George's High School is a comedic piece with a twist, about a family discovering, during a nice dinner out, that their oldest, Lola, is pregnant.

Stay tuned for our The-Write-Stuff 2023 competition!
Details will be posted here.
