About me

Industry Publishing
Location Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Introduction Playwrights Canada Press was created in 1984 as an imprint of the professional association of Canadian playwrights, now called the Playwrights Guild of Canada. In 2000 the Press was separately incorporated from the Guild.

For the first ten years of its existence, the Press published four to six titles of English-Canadian drama annually. We now publish roughly thirty books of plays, theatre history, and criticism each year. While located in Ontario, the Press is proud of its list of published playwrights which stretches from Newfoundland to British Columbia and the Yukon. Playwrights Canada Press also publishes French plays by Canadian authors in English translation, and includes theatre for young audiences.

Playwrights Canada Press is a member of the Association of Canadian Publishers, the Literary Press Group, the Organization of Book Publishers of Ontario, the Canadian Association for Theatre Research, the American Society for Theatre Research, and the Theatre Library Association.
