Message from ATP’s Artistic Director: 

This year the plays in our season go deep, and they go wide. They’re all hot off the presses – they’re very contemporary – and they stretch from zany comedy, to toe-tapping music, to hard-hitting storytelling. We start with a comedy that’s totally over the top; premiere an exceptional young Calgary playwright; go on an unforgettable fantasy adventure; take you on a blues journey; bring a prize-winning Canadian novel to life on stage, and send you off with a giggle. 

The thread that pulls them together is that they’re all about finding a place to belong. Whether it’s by laughing until we can’t breathe, or by opening our minds and hearts in sympathy, theatre has the power to transform us. It gives us a new way of looking at the world and the people around us. These plays feed our curiosity for new experiences. They tickle our funny bone. They speak honestly about life as we live it. They are passionate, relevant, and engaging; funny, heartbreaking and thought provoking.

I hope you’ll find a home with us.

I hope you’ll feel you belong at Alberta Theatre Projects.

Vanessa Porteous
Artistic Director
