Festival Description

Since the winter of 2001, MTC has chosen to honour individual playwrights. Its first annual Master Playwright Festival featured Samuel Beckett. BeckettFest provided opportunities for both professional and emerging artists from a variety of organizations and independent companies to produce work under the umbrella of a larger festival. It also provided patrons with an opportunity to thoroughly immerse themselves in the work of a playwright who may not have a regular home on Winnipeg stages. The inaugural event involved 15 Beckett works by 10 local companies in eight venues. Since then, MTC has presented BrechtFest (2002), PinterFest (2003), AlbeeFest (2004), TremblayFest (2005), O’NeillFest (2006), StoppardFest (2007), MametFest (2008), MillerFest (2009), MillerFest in 2009, and ChurchillFest (2010), StrindbergFest (2012).
