CONFIRMED: Mirvish Productions' KELLY ROBINSON & Stratford's KEITH BARKER
AND THE LOVE NEVER DIES
Two-thirds of Canadian playwrights agree that greater compensation and access to programming opportunities would provide the highest impact in satisfying their current needs as a playwright.* TGCPS offers playwrights a rare opportunity to circumvent "hara-query" and the dreaded slush pile. After all, without playwrights ... il n'y a pas de spectacle, ni de réalisateurs, ni de designers, ni d'équipe, ni d'acteurs, et définitivement pas de public. Vive le dramaturge!
