a million billion pieces
Sixteen-year-olds Pria and Theo have decided to lose their virginity together. There’s just one catch… they both have life-threatening disorders that may cause them to explode from one another’s touch.

Women of the Fur Trade
Sometime in the 1800s, three very different women (with twenty-first century affinities) sit in a fort sharing their views on life, love, and the hot nerd Louis Riel. This historical comedy shifts perspectives from the male gaze to women’s power in the past and present through the lens of the Canadian Fur Trade.

Every Day She Rose
After the Black Lives Matter protest at the 2016 Toronto Pride Parade, two friends find their racial and queer politics aren’t as aligned as they thought, and the playwrights behind them must figure out how to write about the fallout.

Everybody Just C@lm the F#ck Down
In this one-man folly about the aging body and mid-life anxiety, Robert Chafe explores the shifting planes of middle age, grief, creativity, and embracing a lack of control.

Live captioning and a written compilation of the excerpts read will be provided. If you have any other accessibility needs (ASL interpreter, audio description) please let us know by emailing us at info@playwrightscanada.com by Tuesday, July 26.

You can purchase these books at playwrightscanada.com or from your favourite local bookstore!
