In this second bloom, but first full season of projects in collaboration with Black Theatre Workshop, we have emerged with a season full of stories of forgiveness.
As I reflect on the ten years that culminate in this season that I’m so proud of, I hope you, English Theatre’s audience, know how much I have loved these stages and all the people associated with them – backstage, onstage and all of you out in front. It has been a great ten years. Thank you.

This expansive new digital resource brings together artists and creative communities from across so-called Canada to explore the imperatives of abolition movements and their applications to our work in the theatre sector.
NAC English Theatre and Black Theatre Workshop collaborate on a transformative season for 2021-2022.
The NAC has funded 14 of Canada’s most innovative theatre companies to create and perform large-scale, new works in response to these challenging times.
We’re delighted to announce the appointment of Nina Lee Aquino – a leading figure in Canadian theatre who has pushed its boundaries throughout her career – as the next Artistic Director of NAC English Theatre.
NAC English Theatre is bringing together some of the country’s most inventive artists to create and perform innovative new works. These acts will inspire and embolden audiences for the brave new world facing us post-pandemic.
Thank you to the Friends of English Theatre for their passion and continued support.
