DD’s inaugural Emerging Playwright’s Residency Program is currently under way. In partnership with select Toronto theatre companies and under the guidance of experienced dramaturges, emerging playwrights from diverse backgrounds will develop a full-length play over the course of one year, at the end of which there will be workshop readings of each playwright’s script at their respective host theatres. Congratulations to the playwrights who have been chosen to participate in our free residency!
The 2014–15 Diaspora Dialogues’ Emerging Playwrights-in-Residence are:
- Meghan Swaby (Obsidian Theatre Company. Dramaturge: Mel Hague)
- Jo Simalaya Alcampo (Cahoots Theatre Company. Dramaturge: Marjorie Chan)
- Shaista Latif (Buddies in Bad Times. Dramaturge: evalyn parry)
Let the dialogue begin!
