“Shining a light on what lies beneath the surface of things, plumbing the depths of our shared human experience in search of insight and understanding and smashing our assumptions and preconceptions … these are key themes that unite our main stage productions, allowing us to spotlight brilliant local and Canadian artists next season”, says Centaur’s Roy Surette.
“There’s a lot to get excited about: six very diverse plays, five by Montreal playwrights with deep connections to Montreal, four are written by women, three productions are world premieres, two are by artists with long Centaur histories, one is an English language premiere, and all under one roof. That’s one incredible countdown to success!”
