Eastern Front Theatre

Dartmouth, NS

Eastern Front Theatre was founded in 1993 as a Dartmouth-based company supporting the work of Atlantic Canadian playwrights. The original founders, Gay Hauser, Wendy Lill, and Mary Vingoe, brought a wealth of experience and nationally recognized talent to the company. They led the organization for nearly 10 years. Eastern Front Theatre was the resident theatre company at Alderney Landing in Dartmouth from 1999 to 2009. In 2009, Eastern Front Theatre relocated to Halifax where Neptune Theatre’s Scotiabank Stage became its home performance venue before moving home to Alderney Landing in 2021.

​Over the last 29 years, the company has championed countless Atlantic Canadian artists and stories through commissions, workshops, our annual theatre festival, and our playwrights unit. Eastern Front Theatre has produced or presented over 200 original Canadian plays, 32 of which were World Premieres. Eastern Front has four Governor General Award nominations, one Nova Scotia Masterworks nomination, and 16 Robert Merritt Awards (out of 68 nominations).
