cropped-brave-new-poster_11.jpgWe’re happy to be back and getting ready for our 2017 Festival.  This year, both the Staged Reading and the Full Production series will be performed at Studio 1398 on Granville Island.


We’re pleased to have Sara Graefe as our Faculty Advisor and Liesl Lafferty as our incoming Associate Producer.  Check out our Staff and Support Page for more information about these lovely ladies.

If you’re interested in getting involved in the 2017 Festival we have plenty of opportunities. Our calls for Director, Stage Management, and Designer positions will be posted at the end of October 2016.

Auditions will occur in mid January 2017.  We will post more details about our Auditions later in the year. We also will have many volunteer opportunities for those who want to support this amazing Festival.

For now, stay on top of all things Brave New by following us on Facebook and Twitter.

And feel free to email us at for further information.

All the best,
Megan Andres
BNPR 2017 Producer


About Brave New Play Rites

Every year, UBC’s Brave New Play Rites Festival premieres ten short full productions and a staged reading series at Studio 1398 on Granville Island. In 2018, the festival dates are March 10-17. The plays, written by UBC Creative Writing students, are an ambitious collaboration between emerging and established directors, dramaturgs, designers and actors from our vibrant artistic community to create stories of profundity, hilarity and chaos.
