Fresh From the Island: A New Works Festival
Kings Playhouse, Young at Heart Theatre and Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre are accepting play submissions from PEI creators for Fresh from the Island – a new works festival, 2023.
What We’re Looking For:
We are looking for finished scripts and scripts in development at any stage. We encourage all forms of stage work, including devised theatre, monologues, musical theatre, comedy sketches, and new forms of stage performance that require a script.
We encourage submissions from equity deserving writers and creators, and commit to working collaboratively to provide work environments and partnerships that are safe, inclusive and fun throughout the process.
We employ a blind submission process to avoid unintentional bias on the part of our team of qualified readers.
A $20 submission fee supports the producing of the 2023 Fresh from the Island festival.
Fresh From The Island will present the three finalist PEI playwrights in live readings in a festival weekend October 19-22 2023 at Kings Playhouse in Georgetown PE. Each of the three selected scripts will be paired with local actors and professional dramaturgs for an intensive workshop culminating in live, concert-style readings that are open to the public.
**Unfinished scripts will be considered**
An honorarium will be awarded to each finalist selected.
Final selections will be confirmed by:
Kings Playhouse Interim Executive Director, and Young at Heart Theatre Artistic Producer, Catherine O’Brien
Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre Artistic Director, Pamela Halstead
