In 2015, Ruby Slippers Theatre approached Playwrights Guild of Canada and The Vancouver Fringe Festival with the idea to showcase dramatic readings of five new plays over five days that are written and directed by diverse, under-represented theatre artists. Thus, Advance Theatre was born. RST’s vision is a world where diversity is celebrated through a deeper understanding of each other. So our Advance Theatre Festival is part of our larger, ongoing commitment to radical inclusivity, championing diverse artists – including playwrights and directors – who have been historically marginalized.

Our definition of diversity includes all cultural backgrounds, ages, sexual orientations, abilities, and identities.

The Advance Theatre Festival is produced in partnership with Playwrights Guild of Canada and The Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.
