Fiercely Canadian Since 1970

Factory’s mission is to enthral audiences with the imagination of Canadian playwrights and develop the next generation of intercultural theatre artists. Since its founding in 1970, Factory has committed to exclusively produce Canadian plays. Factory has made it an artistic priority to invest in, and showcase Canadian artists who bring their stories to our theatre in Toronto. This has made Factory the home of the Canadian playwright and for over four decades, developing and producing some of the finest theatrical works in our national canon and giving space to some of the most gifted and prolific playwrights in Canada.

"Factory's work is about tackling work with uncomfortable truths; about developing and producing art fuelled and inspired by outrage at social injustice and inequity; and about recognizing and nurturing artists who are proud of their heritage and possess authentic theatrical voices."

Nina Lee Aquino, Artistic Director

"Factory is a tremendous place for new Canadian talent and the development of new plays."

Rick Mercer, Comedian CBC Television
