For many years we were told, in no uncertain terms, not to get together. To stay home. At Neworld, we spent that time preparing the earth, planting seeds, and supporting them as they grew. This year, we’re inviting you to not stay home but to Show Up.
Neworld Theattre creates, produces, and tours new plays, performance events and digital works. Our motto is ‘plays well with others’. Collaboration and working across perceptions of difference are central to our ethics and the way we work. Our programming responds to the creative interests of Neworld’s core artists and opportunities that emerge in relation to other artists and organizations.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
JOIN OUR LEAD ENSEMBLE
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: JANUARY 8TH, 2024, 11:59PM, PST
Neworld Theatre is seeking submissions of interest from potential neurodivergent and neurotypical participants for the LEAD Ensemble. We are specifically seeking submissions from folks with an interest in working across perceptions of difference and exploring making work in a mixed ability space. Up until this point we have brought in new participants by invite only but now want to open the doors wide to see who is out there that we may not yet have had the opportunity to meet. We’re looking to gauge interest and will contact any potential participants who seem like they could be a good fit to join us for a group audition.

Fat joke by cheyenne rouleau
April 25 – May 5, 2024
Directed by Chelsea Haberlin
A mixture of stand-up comedy, storytelling, and fact-blasting, Fat Joke puts fatphobia under the spotlight. Drawing upon personal experience and research, comedian, actor, and writer Cheyenne Rouleau dissects this often-untalked-about topic with eviscerating wit.
This one-person show invites us to confront assumptions. It’s all the stuff people don’t feel comfortable talking about turned into a comedy show!
A Neworld Theatre production, co-presented with The Cultch.
