In residence

Tarragon Theatre has an almost fifty-year history of developing new Canadian plays. At any given time, we have plays that are just beginning, plays in their mid-life in workshops, and plays in production.

We are always seeking out exceptional theatre artists – playwrights, directors, actors, designers and dramaturgs – and we offer a variety of opportunities at the theatre.

See below to find out more information about specific programs we offer to playwrights/creators and actors.

If you’ve checked out our programs and still have questions, or would like more general information please contact

We have long been committed to fostering new work and developing new Canadian voices for an illustrious 50 years. In keeping with this commitment to theatre, we partner with stakeholders to offer emerging playwrights financial support to further develop their plays, to work with skilled artists in new play development, and to showcase their work on a national level.


After a fifty-year history of producing Canadian playwrights and performing artists, we believe that it all starts with one opportunity. And, it can all start for you at Tarragon Theatre. Every year we have plays in varying stages of development, from concept, to workshop and full production. We are always seeking exceptional playwrights, directors, actors, designers and Dramaturgs to go beyond the stage and touch our community.

Here’s the door, just open it!
