2018 Brave New Play Rites Festival
When Professor Bryan Wade first landed in the Creative Writing Department in 1986, he had a simple idea: get playwriting students to write short plays as part of their course. Then, find a theatre space. Recruit a few directors and audition some actors. Take those plays off the page and onto the stage, and invite the public to attend. There is no better learning experience for an emerging playwright than to witness their own work in production in front of a live audience.

Thirty-two years and close to 500 produced plays later, we're proud to bring you 24 new plays written by MFA and BFA students from the University of British Columbia, performed and produced by members of the Vancouver theatre community.
