PlaySmelter 2017

On May 9-13, 2017, join Pat the Dog Theatre Creation for our most exciting PlaySmelter Festival yet!

 

For our fifth annual festival of new Canadian works, we are proud to present — for the first time ever — two full productions of plays by local Sudbury playwrights, Matthew Heiti (Receiver of Wreck) and Lara Bradley (Blind Nickel Pig).

 

In addition to these two Canadian premieres, catch staged readings of Sarah Gartshore’s Debwewin (Truth), Eli Chilton’s The Sandcastle and Brigitte Gall’s Pakistani Sugar.

 

This year also marks the launch of The Producers Unit — the first ever unit of its kind in Northern Ontario. This unit is a paid opportunity for theatre creators to learn from industry professionals and get hands on experience producing new work.
