Morris Foundation/Theatre Network Fund for Commission of Plays
Theatre Network is pleased to announce a new fund for the commission of new plays with funding from the Morris Foundation.
The intent and purpose of the Morris Foundation / Theatre Network Fund for Commission of Plays is to support the creation of scripts focusing on work relating to mental health and/or addiction. This fund was started with a generous donation from the Morris Foundation; a private foundation that supports innovative, evidence-based activities addressing mental illness and addictions in the youth population. This Fund will support the commissioning of Canadian playwrights and the development of new theatrical work that helps us better understand mental health issues and experiences.
