Green Thumb Theatre creates and produces plays that explore social issues relevant to the lives of children, youth and young adults. We provide theatre that celebrates the language and stories of today’s generation and culture to stimulate empathy, debate and critical thinking.
We accept scripts on an on-going, year-round basis.
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) A SASE with sufficient postage should also be included if you wish for your play to be returned
We encourage you to submit using double-sided printing to reduce the use of paper and your costs.
All submissions should be sent to the Artistic Director Patrick McDonald to:
5522 McKinnon St, Vancouver, BC, Canada, V5R 0B6
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. Any script that we are not pursuing will be recycled once a response has been sent unless a SASE with sufficient postage has been included.
