Our values


i Theatre is invested in the continuing work of creating an inclusive, diverse, and caring theatre. We believe we have a responsibility to reflect Canada’s diversity on stage and behind the scenes, and to that end we’re committed to the fundamental work of supporting artists, employees and audience members regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, sexuality, socioeconomic status, age, abilities, nationality, religion, education, and culture.

We believe there is an essential value in audience members seeing the world around them reflected onstage. We also believe that everyone should be given an opportunity to empathize and connect with experiences that are different from their own.

To stimulate those opportunities, Pi is committed to creating an equitable, and inclusive workplace environment where employees and artists feel welcome and respected.

We encourage everyone to welcome and respect the persons around them. Pi believes an inclusive theatre promotes new perspectives, opens minds and hearts, strengthens engagement, and is an important and effective path towards empathy.

Pi Theatre was founded as Pink Ink Theatre Productions Association in 1984 by German émigré Sandhano Schultz. Incorporated in 1988, Pi quickly established a reputation for ambitious, challenging work, with innovative aesthetics and high production values. Pi’s current artistic director, Richard Wolfe, is about to celebrate his 14th anniversary with the company. Under Richard’s leadership, Pi has focused on relevant and impactful programming, resulting in shows that respond directly to its mission. The organization has evolved to seek out important plays from both Canada and the world stage, and to act as an artistic catalyst for the voices of a diverse range of B.C. writers and creators. Over the course of its history, Pi has centered community partnerships in its work. The company collaborates with private business, social service organizations and other cultural groups to make sure the connections we’ve established within our community grow deeper and more meaningful. Partnerships create sustainability. They also create cooperation, collaboration and interaction. Through its history, Pi Theatre has been honoured with 117 Jessie Richardson Award nominations and 36 wins for outstanding artistic achievement.
