Theatre New Brunswick is seeking scripts to workshop for a Fall Festival of New Plays, taking place from September to November of 2020.  If you are a New Brunswick born or based playwright, and you have a full-length script that is ready for a workshop, they’d like to hear from you. 

The Fall Festival of New Plays will support artists in their creation process. This might mean that you work “traditionally” and you have a script and need time with a dramaturge and a cast of actors. It might mean that you and your team need studio space to create and move. The Theatre will work with you to help you take the next step with your play.

Preference will be given to working on ideas and scripts that are already in development, as opposed to ideas that are very new. The projects and the creators should be ready for outside input, criticism and collaboration. It is not necessary that the play be something that TNB would consider producing.

TNB will provide:

  • a dramaturge to work with and help establish goals/writing schedule;
  • a cast of actors to read your work monthly (if required);
  • a director who will direct your final reading or Event;
  • a fee for the applicant/playwright.

The deadline for applications is July 31, 2020. For more information and to apply, click here.
