The Rose Directing Fund

The Rose Directing Fund

In celebration of Richard’s 20 years at Tarragon, Tarragon’s Board of Directors is thrilled to announce the creation of the Rose Directing Fund.

This fund will continue Richard’s vision of bringing excellence to the creation and development of Canadian theatre by celebrating a professional director each season.

The annual recipient will be a director who shows a commitment to telling Canadian stories with innovation and rigor, as Richard Rose has done in leading Tarragon for the last 20 years.

Richard Rose has produced and directed some of the most challenging productions in Tarragon’s history. Through his thoughtful and bold leadership he has guided playwrights to four Governor General’s awards and ten nominations, as well as produced and/or directed multiple Dora Award-winning productions including six winners of Outstanding New Play. He has generously acted as a mentor to dozens of emerging artists and directors.
