Black Swan Theatre New Work Play Festival

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.
