Great Canadian Theatre Company (GCTC)
The Great Canadian Theatre Company was founded in 1975 by a group of professors and graduate students at Carleton University. The founders envisioned a theatre company that would produce only Canadian plays, especially those with social and political relevance. The company gained national recognition for producing the work of notable Canadian playwrights, as well as Ottawa-based writers. GCTC has produced over 84 world premieres to its credit.
