SOCRATIC THEATRE COLLECTIVE is a theatre artists’ collective dedicated to producing high-quality theatre that creates a dialogue:
• within the company,
• among the audience, and
• across the traditional divide.
The collective strives to achieve this goal by developing challenging and thought-provoking productions of new and classic works through an extended collaborative process.
The company is also dedicated to forging bonds between emerging artists and industry veterans, as well as fostering the creative talents of non-professional artists, in an environment of collaboration and creativity.
Founded in 2010, Socratic Theatre Collective’s previous full-length productions include William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Princess of Denmark, the Canadian premiere of Jeremy Menekseoglu’s Ismene, and the world premiere of S. R. Kriger’s The Dark Room. The short piece Wrong Number won the Fresh Spice Award at the 2012 What Are You Doing BACK There?! Festival. The next production is Terry Pratchett’s Mort, to be presented at the 2012 Toronto Fringe Festival.
