Infinithéâtre proudly presents The Pipeline, our annual public reading series of plays that are in coming down our development pipeline. Audience feedback takes centre stage as Infinithéâtre invites the public to catch the excitement and share their views on plays that we are considering for production in future seasons. The winning play of our Write-On-Q! playwriting competition is always featured in this readings series.
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.

Make Up is about the pursuit of happiness. When are we happy with what we have and why doesn’t it ever last. Often, it is only after we have lost the thing we most value that we realize how happy it actually made us.
"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?"
