Theatre Ontario Boardroom
Suite 350, 401 Richmond Street West, Toronto

The ability of directors and dramaturges to work together to help shape meaningful and entertaining theatre is a crucial part of any production process.
Join Matt McGeachy as he discusses the director-dramaturge collaboration when working on new plays. Learn strategies that can help turn what could be a strained, forced, or distant relationship to an intense and fruitful collaboration as with any member of the artistic of design team.

In this workshop, all participants will take as their starting point Governor-General’s Award-winning David Yee’s carried away on the crest of a wave (Playwrights Canada Press, 2014). Participants will use this text to help shape and model discussions about:

  • The pre-production process and collaboration between the director and dramaturge
  • The rehearsal process
  • Giving and receiving meaningful notes
  • Dealing with common issues that arise in this collaboration
  • This workshop is aimed primarily at directors, but all interested artists are welcome.

Participants are encouraged to contact Theatre Ontario to receive up to 40% off the play or they can order directly through Playwrights Canada Press.
