Submissions will open February 5th for the 2024 Tom Hendry Awards.

Each year we host an annual awards competition honouring Canadian playwrights in a wide range of categories, including the RBC Emerging Playwright Award, Carol Bolt Award,  the Dorothy Lees-Blakey Theatre for Young Audiences Award, the Drama and Comedy Award, the Dan School of Drama & Music Musical Award, Robert Beardsley Award for young writers, the John Palmer Award, Lifetime Award, and the Bra D’Or Award. The awards are named after Tom Hendry, a founding member of PGC who passed away in 2012. The awards offer generous cash prizes and winners are recognized in a ceremony that takes place in the fall each year.
