The SPC helps playwrights improve scripts prior to production. From established writers to up-and-coming dramatists, we offer a wide variety of programming that serves the development of Saskatchewan plays. How will you use our services to improve your play?
Improve your skills as a playwright by working under the guidance of an accomplished Canadian director or dramaturge. With the SPC’s mentorship program, you’ll receive one-on-one instruction in the craft and business of playwriting.
Aboriginal Playwrights Circle
The Aboriginal Playwrights Circle provides both mentorship and dramaturgical services in a supportive atmosphere.
The Playwrights Circle gives you an opportunity to meet other playwrights, have your work read, and receive feedback in an informal, stress-free environment.
Our goal at the Saskatchewan Playwrights Centre is to help you create the best plays you can. To help meet this goal, all SPC members receive dramaturgical support.
Live Five program
Plays are meant to be performed, and the Saskatchewan Playwrights Centre has partnered with Live Five to bring your play to the stage: Each year, one SPC member-submitted script will win a spot in Live Five’s next season.
Spring Festival of New Plays

Women and Femme-Folk Playwrights Circle
The Women and Femme Folk Playwrights Circle gives women and any femme-identifying or non-binary person in the LGBTQ community an opportunity to meet in a safe environment to create text based performance and theatre work.
