The Sunset Theatre is the crucible for theatre artists to create new works. The Exploration Series, launched in 2006 at the Sunset Theatre, supports the creation and development of new plays in the varying phases of the creative cycle from inception to full production. The format for each of the Exploration Series projects is as unique as each artist, at the varying stages of development. Sometimes it’s a retreat for writing, and sometimes it’s development, geared towards production.  The Sunset Theatre’s support of new Canadian plays has been at the core of the company’s mandate from its inception - whether engaging a dramaturge, workshopping a script, scrapbooking initial ideas and concepts, or wanting to hear your play read in front of an audience for the first time.  We look forward to you joining us in establishing the Sunset Theatre as a centre for excellence.
