10th InspiraTO Festival 

Alumnae Theatre Mainstage, May 28 - June 6, 2015 

The Urban Jungle

Theatre InspiraTO, the producer of Canada's largest ten-minute play festival, InspiraTO Festival, showcases the best ten-minute plays from around the globe and featured local playwrights. What makes the festival truly distinct is its curated approach to theater.

This past season we produced 25 ten-minute plays. See "Anatomy of a festival" above, to give you an idea on the dynamics of the festival.

We have many more interesting things planned for our upcoming tenth season, a milestone in our history. This season's creative challenge, the urban jungle, promises to be rich with theatrical possibilities.  

You can be part of it all! Submit a play to InspiraTO's Playwriting Contest - deadline to submit Dec, 1, 2014.  We will also announce shortly how to take part in InspiraTO's Playwriting Academy.     

The InspiraTO Festival is proud to partner with pat the dog, Ontario's playwright centre, helping emerging and established playwrights in Ontario. 
What I saw that evening was much more than a collection of individual ten-minute plays in one show - it felt like a full length play - with rising action, turning point and resolution.  -Elaine Romero (winner of the 2010 InspiraTO Playwriting Contest)
