ADVANCE THEATRE: NEW WORKS BY DIVERSE WOMEN

According to a national study, in the Canadian theatre industry women account for 33% of the artistic directors, 34% of the working directors, and 27% of the produced playwrights. These numbers are even lower if you look only at the large regional theatres and summer festivals. And diversity? We think you know the answer to that one.

Mission Statement

Multi-award winning Ruby Slippers Theatre produces provocative text-based theatre from the vanguard of the English and French Canadian canon. We are the only company in Vancouver mandated to producing the contemporary Quebecois canon in English, and have been doing so since 1990. Our work illuminates diverse perspectives and social issues, inspiring independent critical thought, communion, and diversity.
