A 2006 alumni from the National Theatre School of Canada in playwriting, David Paquet’s plays know no boundaries. His first play, Porc-épic [2009], was staged in many countries and gave him the reward of being named recipient of the Governor General of Canada’s Literary Award in 2010. His second play, 2h14 [2010], was staged in France, Mexico, Quebec and Germany, where the play was adapted for the radio. 2h14 was awarded best play for a young audience by the Quebec Association of Theatre Critics, the Sony Labou Tansi prize in France and was adapted to the screen in a webseries broadcasted on TV5 Monde. He is also the author of Le Brasier [2012] and Appels Entrants Illimités [2013]. In 2015, David was invited for a two-year residency as the in-house playwright of Montreal’s Centre du Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui where he will stage himself in Papiers Machés, a literary and poetic cabaret. Aside from being a prolific playwright, David Paquet has also undertaken translating, rendering the French version of Hannah Moscovitch’s In this world for Youtheater Company, presently on tour throughout Canada.
