We are only able to offer developmental support to Canadian playwrights. However, we are willing to accept submissions of produced plays from international playwrights for production consideration. Each play submission should include:

1) Your full mailing address, phone number and e-mail address

2) A cover letter containing information about the development of the play, what stage you feel the script is at, any past or current productions, and any contractual obligations you have with other theatres regarding this play

3) Synopsis of the play

4) Breakdown of the cast (how many in the cast, doubling, etc. )

5) Self addressed return envelope and postage if applicant would like physical copy of script returned



We acknowledge, via e-mail, that your submission has been received. Once your submission has been read, you will receive a letter from us to indicate whether we are interested in further discussion or if the play isn’t a good fit for us. Every submission will receive a response. Please be patient. Other time constraints may delay our replies. We generally do not include dramaturgical feedback in our responses.
