On December 23rd , with the death of Joel Yanofsky, at the young age of 65, Canada and Quebec lost a great writer and Quebec theatre lost a great playwright in the making. We are deeply saddened by his unexpected and premature passing. Infinithéâtre offers his wife, Cynthia, his son Jonah, and his extended family our warm condolences for their immense and tragic loss.
In 2016 and then again in 2018 (the only playwright to have been invited twice) Joel was a member of Infinithéâtre’s Playwrights’ Unit. First, for his musical Love U and then for Prequel, his old testament comedy in two acts. Over a twelve-month work period, he and five other playwrights in the Unit read each other’s plays and provided developmental feedback on every new draft. Joel’s voice, delivered with the iconic twinkle in his eye, usually went last, and was the most generous, incisive, wise and gentle commentator in the room.
We miss you Joel.

The Infinite Playwrights' Chat Room is Infinithéâtre's latest play development initiative, inviting members of the public across Canada to participate in the development of a series of exciting new plays. Our playwrights are looking for your help to write the next draft of their play. This is a genuine dramaturgical process, followed by a live Zoom on-line chat session with the playwright and moderator, taking up your suggestions, addressing your questions and hopefully providing the writer with fresh inspiration for the new draft.

Infinithéâtre’s International Hit Kafka’s Ape went to Beijing!
September 3rd to 6th 2019
Starring Howard Rosenstein
Adapted and Directed by Guy Sprung
Red Peter turned the stage into a veritable annual report of the company. His speech, his accusation and his actions completely blurred the biological boundary between man and ape ... civilization and barbarism, freedom and slavery, hypocrisy and nature ... Hold on tight!
