We invited seven Québec playwrights, developing seven 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. This is the first times these plays are read in front of a live audience. We look forward to your feedback!






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 plays@infinitheatre.com.
