Thank you, Feminist Debaters!

Announcing Paprika Festival's 2018 Play Reading Series - Presented with support from Feminist Debaters!

What is Feminist Debaters?

Hilarious individuals from Toronto's theatre and comedy community go head-to-head in a battle of feminist wits! Feminist Debaters 2018 is slated for Sunday January 21st at the Rivoli.

Why Paprika's Play-reading Series?

Feminist Debaters is thrilled to be a sponsor of Paprika's 2018 Play Reading Series which will take place during the 2018 Paprika Festival at Aki Studio. Feminist Debaters began in 2016 and has evolved into an annual fundraiser that directly supports the work of early career female playwrights. Though Paprika's Playwrights in Residence and Writers' Circle are open to everyone, this year's participants are all female-identifying. Feminist Debaters is honoured play a role in developing their work!  

Join the Feminist Debaters on January 21, 2018 at The Rivoli!
