Community Update

June 29, 2022

As we move into the summer, we’re grateful to be sharing a community update on the 2021-2022 season.

It was an equally challenging and inspiring season here at Prairie Theatre Exchange. As we all navigated COVID, the Omicron wave, and eventually re-opening(s), we have remained open, agile, and responsive. We have also dedicated ourselves to continuing all of the work of the company, on stage and off.

Through it all we have been buoyed by the imagination of artists, the dedication of audiences, and the support of funders. We wouldn’t be here, where we are today, without community, in all its forms.


This season we continued to produce, present and explore telling stories in a digital medium. In addition to our announced productions of 11:11 by Samson Bonkeabantu Brown (Theatre Passe Muraille production) and Deer Woman (ARTICLE 11 production), we also created a film of The War Being Waged by Darla Contois. With the postponement of Bad Parent by Ins Choi (with vAct and Soulpepper), we programmed two additional digital offerings:  Places We Go by Hazel Venzon and David Oro (UNIT Productions) and PTE-produced A Dance to the End of the World by Thomas Morgan Jones; directed by Soheil Parsa with illustrations by Josh Murdock.

The War Being Waged is currently available on the Stratford Festival’s Stratfest@Home streaming service. We’re thrilled to continue sharing this story.

The War Being Waged, Places We Go, and our production of VOICE by Ismaila Alfa also enjoyed a national digital school tour, playing to thousands of young people in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.

These are a summary of major activities at the company this past season. They can’t encapsulate the entire journey, but we are inspired by what we’ve learned, what we’ve accomplished, and we are clear about the work ahead of us. And, as always, we’re ready for the unknown.

We’ll post another community update in the fall, and we already know there will be so much to share…

On behalf of everyone at Prairie Theatre Exchange, thank you for reading, and for engaging with our theatre and company.
