New and previously produced scripts submitted by or on behalf of professional playwrights by literary agencies, dramaturgs and literary managers, and directors and artistic directors of professional theatre companies are welcome. For musicals, please include CDs or attach mp3s.
Unfortunately, we are unable to respond in a timely manner to unsolicited manuscripts. You are welcome to submit a hard copy of your play with the knowledge that we will contact only those writers whose script we have an interest in.
Senior artistic staff see as many professional play readings and productions of Canadian work in the Lower Mainland as possible. If you have a reading or production of your work in the area, please contact Bill Millerd, Artistic Managing Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Rachel Ditor, Literary Manager, at email@example.com and we will do our best to attend.
The Arts Club programs new Canadian work on our stages on a regular basis. To gain more insight into the kind of new plays we are developing, please attend our free public readings during our annual ReACT: New Plays In Progress event.
