Who We Are

Alberta Theatre Projects’ Mission, Vision and Values


We create world-class contemporary theatre from our home in the Martha Cohen Theatre.  We are a national leader in new play development. Programming is driven by the collision of diverging ideas, points of view, class, gender, or cultural perspectives and is selected from the finest Canadian and international plays and new works commissioned and developed in-house. Our productions radically explore our space, blurring the line between the audience and the artist through multiple seating configurations each season.


We are provocative contemporary storytellers, reflecting our world through stirring theatrical experiences.



We are guided every day by the principles of kindness, respect, and integrity.


We pride ourselves on quality, ensuring every element of our operations and the work we put on stage is exceptional.


We celebrate human connection and the diversity of our world with an emphasis on inclusion and accessibility.


We explore magical ideas, creativity, and the power of our imagination to create new ways of working on stage and behind the scenes.


We bring together people from every corner of our city, province and nation to share in the power of storytelling.
