CALLING ALL PLAYWRIGHTS!

The Steady State Theatre Project is calling all Toronto playwrights and new play developers!

Scab Saga by Glyn Bowerman

Steady State is currently accepting applications for our two central programs:

  •  The Steady State Playwright’s Unit works on the development of new plays that are already in progress. The Unit involves regular group development meetings, monthly presentations and one-on-one dramaturgy. These plays are showcased as part of a Script Scrap, a week- long festival at the end of the spring.
  • The Steady State Writers’ Circle focuses on the initial development of new plays. The applying playwrights are expected to come forward with a starting point or an idea and the group works collaboratively on the expansion of these starting points into plays. After a six-month period, meeting twice a month, readings of excerpts from these plays-in-development are presented as part of Script Scrap in the spring.

   [Play] by Michael Bedford   Jiv Parasram

New play development through our program has resulted in the development of dozens of new plays – many of which have gone on to festival or professional productions. We provide an opportunity for selected applicants to take their work to the next level, whether that is a first draft, workshop, production or grant.

Space is limited for these programs and applications will only be accepted until November 20th at 10pm.

All interested applicants should submit (in PDF format):

  • A bio and resume
  • A letter of intent which outlines your play (for the Unit)
  • A letter of intent which outlines your idea (for the Circle)
  • A 5-page script sample (for the Unit)
