The Pull Festival is an annual play Festival featuring a repertoire of seven ten-minute plays. Pull seeks out original, un-produced plays from Vancouver based playwrights and along with its artistic team, produces, develops, dramaturges and supports the presentation of these new works.
emphasis on new work
Pull only produces 10 minute plays that have not been previously mounted. All works must be original and not submitted through other festivals.
Pull is committed to being an inclusive festival for all and to creating a environment for everyone to come and celebrate a night at the theatre.
Pull seeks out emerging artists and gives them an opportunity to create a character in a safe and exciting environment.
it's hella fun
At Pull we don't take ourselves or the festival too seriously. With activities to go along with the evening, Pull promises to be the best time you've had watching live theatre.
Pull Fest is run by curators and producers on a volunteer basis under SpeakEasy Theatre Company Society.
