Hello Playwrights and Theatre Makers!

Notable Acts Theatre Festival, July 26th - August 5th

Notable Acts is happy to announce our twenty-second annual province-wide playwriting competition! Contest winners will have their work featured in the 2023 NotaBle Acts Summer Theatre Festival, held in Fredericton: from July 26th – August 5th.

If you’re a New Brunswick playwright, we are seeking submissions in three main categories: one for 15-30 minute site-specific plays, one for 7-10 minute short plays, and another for 30-60 minute one-act plays. Two additional contest categories are for New Brunswick Middle and High school playwrights.
