The Suncor Stage One Festival of New Work


Celebrate 30 years of Playwriting history! 

This June marks the 30th ANNIVERSARY OF STAGE ONE! For 30 years Lunchbox Theatre has been dedicated to the creation, development and production of new Canadian one-act plays, many of which have gone on to great acclaim after their premiere on our stage. June 2017 we will commemorate this remarkable achievement, as well as celebrating the astounding contribution of Stage One's corporate sponsor SUNCOR ENERGY for their 30 years of remarkable partnership.
