Taking place from June 17th-20th 2013, at the Toronto Centre for the Arts, four playwrights will have the chance to workshop their scripts with professional actors and directors and receive one public staged reading. Now in its third year, In the Beginning aims to open the door for Jewish voices that offer fresh perspectives on Jewish history, heritage, and experience.

Our primary goal is to engage with Jewish Canadian Artists, develop pieces from In the Beginning and potentially move them forward to a future production at the Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company (HGJTC).

At the Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company, we embrace and celebrate the Jewish story. Now in our sixth season, we have won 1 Dora Mavor Moore Award, received 6 nominations and continue to be committed to achieving the highest level of artistic excellence. As part of our mandate to support the development of Jewish artists, the HGJTC is thrilled to present the 3rd annual In the Beginning, with generous support of the Royal Bank Foundation.
