Neworld Theatre



Artistic Director: Marcus Youssef

Neworld Theatre is an award-winning, Vancouver-based theatre company that creates, produces and tours new plays and performance events. We tell stories that reflect Canada’s diversity in the broadest sense – cultural, linguistic, social and economic. We use popular forms to examine our lives in the context of who counts, who doesn’t, and what our relationship is to the people we may think we aren’t.

Since 1999, Neworld has won more than 19 Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards (from over 70 nominations), the Alcan Performing Arts Award, the Vancouver Sun Innovation Award, the Seattle Times Footlight Award, the Canada Council Theatre for Young Audiences Award. Neworld’s productions have been seen in major festivals across North American and in Europe. These include Winners and LosersHow Has My Love Affected YouThe Idiot, the PodPlays series, Peter PantiesAli and Ali and the aXes of Evil, Mixie and the HalfbreedsAdriftCrime and Punishment and Asylum of the Universe. In 2009, Neworld also co-founded PL 1422, a cultural hub in East Vancouver co-managed with three other indie theatre companies.
