In our 2018/19 season, teachers will have two opportunities to book workshops during Studio 180 IN DEVELOPMENT in November and April. Students will have the rare opportunity to go behind the scenes and experience a work-in-progress by a Canadian playwright. With Studio 180 IN CLASS, in addition to participating in three immersive workshop sessions, students will glimpse the development process, meet the artists and provide feedback. Admission to school readings is free when you book a workshop for your group.

Our 2017/18 RBC Emerging Playwright Cynthia Jimenez-Hicks continues to develop her play Apple, based on experiences as a young woman attending abstinence retreats.

Apple was a hit with students and teachers during IN DEVELOPMENT in Fall 2017 (pictured above), so we’re inviting a new set of students into the process as we continue to nurture this play and this exciting young playwright.

Originally from Edmonton, Cynthia trained as an actor at the National Theatre School and is a Toronto based actor, writer and producer. Cynthia’s theatre credits include: Girls Like That (Tarragon Theatre); Boys, Girls and Other Mythological Creatures, Spelling 2-5-5 (Carousel Players); Pinocchio, Robin Hood (Torrent Productions); The Hothouse Prince (Teatro La Quindicina); Hello Again (The Artillery Collective); Scorched (NTS); Cleave (New Words Festival). Upcoming: Cynthia will be performing in The Candidate and The Party by Kat Sandler premiering at the Citadel Theatre this spring. Cynthia has proudly participated in the development of many new Canadian plays; she was in fu-GEN’s 2017 Kitchen Creation Unit and is currently in the second season of developing her play, Apple, as the Studio 180 RBC Emerging Playwright.
