6th Annual Women’s Work Festival
Co-produced by RCA Theatre, She Said Yes! and White Rooster Theatre in celebration of International Women’s Week, March 3-9, 2012.
All submissions must be either by a female playwright or deal with a female character as the central figure. All plays must be unproduced, although previous workshops or readings of the work are permitted.
Deadline 5 pm December 15, 2011. Scripts will be selected by a committee representing all three companies.
Each script will receive a one-day dramaturgical workshop with a professional cast and dramaturge, followed by a staged reading in St. John’s. All playwrights, actors and dramaturges will receive a small honorarium for their work. The Festival does not cover any transportation or accommodations costs for out-of-town playwrights but your local arts council or the Canada Council for the Arts may provide travel grants for this purpose. All proceeds from the reading series will be donated to a local women’s shelter.
Submit an electronic copy of a full draft of your play and a short synopsis in either Microsoft Word or PDF format, with an email indicating your telephone number, mailing address, and email address, as well as your reasons for applying to the Festival, to email@example.com (put Women’s Work Festival in the subject line).
