Black Swan Theatre are hosting their first New Work Play Festival to showcase emerging Canadian talent! This is an online festival which will showcase new, previously un-staged one act plays between 10-30 minutes long.
They are hoping to select bold plays from emerging young creatives. All chosen playwrights will receive workshop-style edits, dramaturgical support, and a public staged reading of their play. The set of staged readings will likely take place over Zoom in early 2021 due to COVID-19 protocols. After the plays are selected, we will be holding auditions for actors.
For every staged reading, there will be the opportunity for spectators to donate and pay what they can — a portion of these donations will be given to BLM Canada as they further attempt to merge the worlds of art and activism.
Deadline for submissions: November 10th, 2020 at midnight
