PGC stands in solidarity with the 11,500 writers in the US who are currently on strike. PGC staff, Board and members are certainly in a unique position to appreciate that those writers are a key talent in the creation of works for screen and we support their right to insist upon compensation and working conditions that acknowledge their important contribution. We also acknowledge the role that the Writers Guild of America takes in backing those individuals. Our storytellers are incredibly important; our cultural landscape, our lives are enriched by their ability to craft words, invent worlds, and create characters and they deserve to be treated and paid well for their unique contribution.
Featured Playwright of the Month
Each month we interview member playwrights to share their work, stories and inspiration with the community. We recently spoke with theatre artist, educator, and consultant, Elio Zarrillo!
News & Announcements
Playwrights Guild of Canada honours and acknowledges the territory upon which our office resides, the traditional land of the Wendat, the nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Métis, and the Anishinabek, including the Mississaugas of the Credit. We recognize and respect all recorded and unrecorded Nations who care(d) for this land of Tkaronto, meaning “Where the Trees Meet the Water.” PGC is grateful for the opportunity to protect and care for the stories of this community, which is the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island.
