2016/2017 New Play Development Program and 12th Annual Wine & Reading Event
Call for Submissions :
ECT is now accepting submissions of new unproduced plays from Niagara based playwrights for our annual New Play Development program and Wine & Reading event.
How to submit:
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org with a PDF version of you script
Mail or drop off a hard copy version of your script to our offices at:
366 St. Paul Street, St. Catharines, ON, L2R 3N2
How it works:
Two plays are selected by ECT’s review committee.
If your play is selected you’ll be paired up with an experienced dramaturge and a cast of professional actors who will workshop your play for a minimum of two four-hour sessions. Your cast will then rehearse selections of your play to read in front of our audience at ECT’s 12th Annual Wine & Reading event on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at:
1607 Eighth Avenue Louth
St. Catharines, ON L2R 6P7
Afterwards you’ll be invited to participate in a brief question and answer period with the audience. Each playwright also receives an honorarium of $150.
ECT covers all production expenses.
Playwrights of all experience levels are encouraged to submit. Past works include She’s Mine by Stephanie Jones, A Shot to the Head by Spencer Smith, White Crow by Dawn E. Crysler, Learning to Swim by Radha S. Menon and Wings of Wax by Lindsay Price.
