Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal (PWM) is a nationally-mandated, dramaturgically-led development centre focused on the collaborative process of creating new work for performance. PWM has designed and implemented programs that foster innovative work and further develop the artistic practice of contemporary creators. Our focus is the process of development, whether written or devised, at every stage-from the idea to performance.
Founded in 1963 and incorporated in 1966, PWM’s objective is to advance the artistic practice of contemporary creators and collaborate in developing innovative work for performance. We are committed to the examination, refinement and implementation of new dramaturgical approaches to creation. From our home base, a bright loft in Montréal’s Plateau district, we work with creators across the country and beyond.
