Advance Theatre: New Works By Women

At the False Creek Gym (1318 Cartwright Street)
According to a national study, women account for less than a third of artistic directors, working directors, and produced playwrights in professional Canadian theatre. That’s why Ruby Slippers Theatre and Equity in Theatre partnered with the Fringe to showcase dramatic readings of five new plays by Canadian women playwrights. Curated by Ruby Slippers Theatre with priority given to diversity, these dramatic readings will be presented as matinees during the Festival. 

Tickets are available at the door only and are pay-what-you-can with a suggested price of $5 to $10.

Mission Statement

Multi award-winning Ruby Slippers Theatre produces provocative text-based theatre from the vanguard of the English and French Canadian canon. We further the voices of women in theatre, empowering them on and offstage, and are the only company in Vancouver whose mission includes producing the contemporary Quebecois canon in English. Our work illuminates diverse and underrepresented perspectives and social issues, inspiring independent critical thought, communion, and diversity.
