Tarragon Theatre

Artistic Director: Richard Rose

Managing Director: Susan Moffat

Tarragon Theatre’s mission is to create, develop and produce new plays and to provide the conditions for new work to thrive. To that end, the theatre engages the best theatre artists and craftspeople to interpret new work; presents each new work with high quality production values; provides an administrative structure to support new work; develops marketing strategies to promote new work; and continually generates an audience for new work.

As a complement to the new work created here, Tarragon presents new plays from all parts of the country, revives significant Canadian plays and produces international work, contemporary and classical. Long-term dramaturgy, tailored to the play and playwright, is a priority at Tarragon. Programs for play development are various and flexible ranging from Resident Playwrights to Playwrights Unit to WorkSpace.

Of great importance is the training of artists, administrators and production personnel from students to professionals in the creation, development, interpretation and production of new work. Education and outreach activities — to artists, to young people, to educators, and to our general audience — are designed to foster an understanding and appreciation of the process of creating new plays. Tarragon’s venue is used extensively to support the creation and development of new works by other theatre artists, through space made available for rehearsals, workshops, and productions, and our long-standing partnership with the Paprika Festival.
