zone41 brings national calibre theatre artists who live or have roots in Manitoba together to revision classic works through ensemble collaboration.  We look to our region, the classics of the world theatre repertory and our experiences as artists to inform the stories we tell.

zone41 takes excellent plays steeped in tradition and gives them an overhaul that makes sense to our audience.  We are committed to taking our time and paying all of our artists established professional association wages.

zone41 cultivates partnerships with non-traditional spaces like local multi-use galleries and venues such as the West End Cultural Centre to broaden our audience. We privilege our relationship with creation-oriented organizations like the Manitoba Association of Playwrights. We actively engage our peers at Shakespeare in the Ruins, Theatre Projects Manitoba, Prairie Theatre Exchange and Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre as these relationships allow us to share production resources and to bring in educational opportunities in support of Manitoba artists.
