Thank you for your support!
The Canadian Play Thing was created in March 2020 to support and celebrate the work of Canadian playwrights during the pandemic. It incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in the fall of 2020. Between 2020-22, the Play Thing hosted more than 50 online readings, interviews, workshops and events, made possible through the generous donations of our supporters and hundreds of reading volunteers. There are no plans for events beyond the fall of 2022 and we are no longer accepting donations.
Huge gratitude to our past donors!
Support the Play Thing
This is a volunteer-run project. Your donations are much appreciated and go towards covering the online costs of organizing live readings of underproduced plays.

Ways you can help
The Play Thing got rolling on March 17, 2020, and now has more than 500 members, volunteers and subscribers across Canada and beyond.
The Canadian Play Thing recently incorporated as a not-for-profit society. We have entered a new phase of development, planning and exciting new projects - and we could use your support!
Consider making a contribution to keep the Play Thing going - to support and encourage Canadian playwrights, and give brilliant, bored actors something to do.
