Hear what Atlantic Canada has to say about PARC, our services and our presence in the community.

“I like to think of the work PARC does as an important, independent “research and development wing” of the Atlantic Canadian theatre scene. Independence means a “purity” in the process in that playwrights write about the things they are truly passionate about. And passion is the wellspring of all great art. PARC’s services are essential if we are to nurture our writers.”
— Scott Burke

“I credit PARC with a continued effort to bridge the distance between creative minds in Atlantic Canada that often have no choice but to work in seclusion. PARC provides top notch dramaturgical support with top notch talent. The importance of early and effective dramaturgical support for the development of a distinct regional theatrical voice can not be declared loud enough. The work that PARC has done, and aims to do, is unquestionably essential to the growth of the Atlantic Canadian voice.”
— Robert Chafe

“PARC is the only organization in the Maritime region seriously committed to developing new plays. I can’t stress enough the importance of this effort, both as an artistic aim in itself, and for maintaining a living theatre in this region.”
— Graham Percy

“In the west, we often wonder why so many terrific plays and playwrights come out of Atlantic Canada. Why are so many of the winners of the Governor General’s award from Atlantic Canada we ask? There is no doubt in my mind that the excellent work that PARC has done under the leadership of Jenny Munday is a key ingredient to this formula. It develops and supports the work of emerging and established artists alike.”
— Heather Inglis

“PARC is essential. The organization provides essential services that support new work for the theatre. Writing for the theatre involves a complicated interface between playwright director and audience. The work off the page has to engage that process long before the first production. PARC makes that possible for playwrights in the Atlantic Region. PARC is not a sit on its bum and gab kind of organization. PARC gets creative work done.”
