Beyond The Canon
- a groundbreaking play written by a culturally diverse writer and/or with a culturally diverse leading character that does not exist in the classical play canon or academic curriculum
- a play written by a culturally diverse writer which has only been professionally staged once and/or only in one country.
Beyond The Canon is an organisation dedicated to promoting diversity in the arts by championing hidden and forgotten plays written by international culturally diverse playwrights.
There are 'classics, masterpieces and gems' within the Beyond The Canon library and we are committed to increase the visibility, accessibility and knowledge of these groundbreaking plays by staging UK and International revivals, monologue showcases, bespoke workshops, play clubs and publications to support, empower and inspire culturally diverse artists as well as, enrich the artistic industry in the UK and across the world.
