Since 2016, Expect has been producing the PlayME Podcast, transforming new Canadian plays into audio dramas, and making Canadian theatre accessible to audiences worldwide. In 2018, PlayME joined the CBC Podcasts family, where the show continues to raise the profile of Canadian playwrights nationally and internationally.


PlayME has had over 600,000 downloads in 90 different countries since its inception.

PlayME from CBC Podcasts 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.

EXPECT’s Artistic Directors, Laura Mullin and Chris Tolley are spearheading this project, partnered with Playwrights Guild of Canada and supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council.
