The PlaySmelter Northern New Works Theatre Festival is celebrating our Seventh Annual Festival this May!

We believe that theatre is a place of discovery. Good theatre is not a provider of answers but an invitation to question.  We work hard to create plays that invite audiences to be provoked, challenged, inspired and entertained. There is a direct connection between PlaySmelter and the growing theatre culture in our city. Collaboration is key. That’s what every night of PlaySmelter is all about – a collaboration between writers, performers and you – our audience. Your contribution is vital. Without an audience, theatre would not have that electric, exciting connection – it would not be ‘live.’ These living plays need you. Stay afterward for a chat, break bread with us, and help them grow.
