Expect Theatre’s exciting new initiative celebrates the best of Canadian Indie Theatre on a national scale. The project helps raise the profile of Canadian playwrights by highlighting new works through a series of podcasts, making it accessible to audiences across Canada.

PlayME is transforming the way we experience Canadian theatre, by taking a bold and innovative approach to disseminating plays. The podcast features distinguished actors, and focuses on current and relevant scripts geared to the growing “on-demand” audience.

PlayME currently has over 18,000 listeners from over 40 different countries since its inception.

EXPECT’s Artistic Directors, Laura Mullin and Chris Tolley, are spearheading this project, in partnership with NextStage Theatre Festival and the Playwrights Guild of Canada. PlayME is supported by the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Ontario Arts Council.
