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

“My time at the Playwrights Colony has been the highlight of my experiences as a PARC member. Having a full week devoted entirely to developing my play under the guidance of an experienced dramaturg was truly a gift - it gave me the time and space I craved to focus on my craft and develop my script in a supportive community.”
— Shauntay Grant

“By its very existence, PARC showed me there was an information and support group for Atlantic Canadian playwrights. I have received critical evaluation of some of my early work from which I have learned a great deal. I find that PARC is a great source of encouragement.”
— John Spurway

“PARC is the only organization that east coast playwrights have to turn to for help with readings, promotion, dramaturgy and writing colonies. PARC is also the only organization in this region that is actively building a library of plays by east coast writers. The importance of PARC to the Maritimes’ cultural fabric cannot—and should not be—underestimated.”
— Jackie Torrens

“PARC has proven itself to be an effective medium for the education, promotion and development of playwrights and playwriting in Atlantic Canada. Since its founding in 1991, PARC has brought together playwrights and dramaturges with actors and directors to workshop some of the most exciting new plays that have come out of the region. PARC is vital to the health of our community.”
— Mary Vingoe
