With a commitment to the development of new Canadian plays, Chimera Theatre’s New Play Series will be presenting plays-in-progress by new and emerging playwrights. The selected playwrights will be provided with a chance to workshop their script with actors and a director, and have their play presented in a staged reading. This means an opportunity for playwrights to write, rewrite, experiment, and expand their work while providing audiences with a thrilling and intimate night of theatre.


Now in its third year, the New Play Series will present two newly crafted and workshopped script by local playwrights. After the staged reading of each script, there will be a talk back session with the playwright, actors, and director about the script and the staged reading.
