The origin story of Gangway! Theatre Co. starts in 2011 when a writer met an actor, and found they both had unique skills and experience to create new work together!
Since then, co-founders KT Bryski and Blythe Haynes have enjoyed collaborating on many eclectic projects – podcasts, the founding of a History Actor department or writing and creating shows. Gangway! Theatre Co. officially came to being in 2018 and is dedicated to creating quality Canadian theatre.
The partnership between co-founders KT Bryski and Blythe Haynes demonstrates their interest of interdisciplinary exposure and collaboration. They have spent their careers exploring theatre as a means to connect, inform, and engage audiences. Gangway! is committed to bringing women’s stories to life and providing a safe harbour for local artists to pursue their craft. Their love of site-specific content, dabbling in the fantastical and plays by female and Canadian playwrights inspires them to bring unfamiliar stories and spaces to life, and to lift up voices too often unheard.
