Obsidian is Canada's leading culturally specific theatre company. Our threefold mission is to produce plays, to develop playwrights and to train theatre professionals.
Obsidian Theatre Company will produce plays from the world-wide canon focusing primarily, but not exclusively, on the works of highly acclaimed playwrights of African descent. Through dramaturgical and performance workshops OTC will promote and develop the work of AfriCanadian playwrights. OTC will provide opportunities for employment and training through mentoring and apprenticeship programs.
