Starting in November of 2013, Delinquent Theatre accepted submissions from BC playwrights to take part in a Playwrights in Residence Program. Four playwrights (Chris Cook, Sebastian Kroon, CJ McGillivray and Mily Mumford) were supported through two workshops and a three-day writer’s retreat to complete and refine their full-length plays. Delinquent Theatre concluded its Playwrights in Residence Program with Write Minds: public readings of new works. Two nights, two exciting double bills. Four vibrant new playwrights explore love, death, and what it means to be “okay”.

White Picket Fence by CJ McGillivray

Quick Bright Things by Chris Cook
A weekend with the extended family wouldn’t be complete without burnt casserole, a dead deer, and a hallucination or two. A comic drama exploring mental health, and a father and son’s battle with schizophrenia.
