Factory Theatre: Diversity Beyond the Great White North

Toronto based, Factory Theatre continues to commit to diversity this season as it programs “Beyond the Great White North,” six new plays, each written by a playwright of colour. It is a strong move from a company that was already committed to diversity and inclusion through Canadian theatre.

“It’s just the start of a dialogue, as if I were pushing a dish to the centre of the table and asking artists and audience to sample different tastes. I’m always looking for work that offers an intersection, a collision of ideas. I’m always attracted to scripts where the lines blur, where the safety net is cut. That’s where real dialogue can happen.”
