Where Theatre Begins
The Manitoba Association of Playwrights is where theatre begins; with the playwright. MAP is a non-profit organization founded in 1979 to provide support for playwrights and playwriting in Manitoba. MAP supports playwrights through...
- workshops and readings,
- dramaturgy and the "Open Door",
- the annual High School Student Play Contest,
- the Harry S. Rintoul Award,
- the Jarvis Resource Centre library and archive
MAP members include established Manitoba dramatists (like Bruce McManus, Maureen Hunter, and Sharon Bajer), emerging playwrights just learning their craft, and writers at all stages of their artistic careers from all across Manitoba. MAP is open to any one interested in the continuing health of playwriting and the production of new Manitoba plays.
Membership is $50/year; $25 for students.
