Emerging artists from across the country, unite! It’s a jam-packed weekend of guest artists, wild performances, panel discussions, networking events and big fun, connecting early career theatre makers at the 27th Annual Enbridge playRites Festival of New Canadian Plays.

Bask in the hedonistic glory of The God That Comes on Stage 2: a rock song cycle/concept album for the stage performed by Juno-award winner Hawksley Workman
Debunk the myth of having only one career path in our guest-artist panel discussion Redefining Plan A
Let loose and celebrate Canada’s Queer theatre scene in a special Forum bringing together artists from across disciplines
Run wild through the EPCOR Centre and meet our neighbours in an Artsworker Treasure Hunt
Eat, drink and be merry with bag lunches, coffee dates, late-night parties and much, much, more!
