Calling All Playwrights!
The Banff Centre is now accepting applications for the 2012 Banff Playwrights Colony.
Faculty: Vern Thiessen – Senior playwright-in-residence , Colleen Murphy – Resident Dramaturge
April 30, 2012 – June 2, 2012
Deadline: November 18, 2011
From emerging playwrights to seasoned professionals, the participants at the Banff Playwrights Colony represent the richness and variety of contemporary Canadian theatre writing from all across the country. The Colony is a five-week residential program that focuses on text-based theatre. Because the objective of the Colony is to serve the specific needs of each playwright and his or her project, plays may be at various stages of development, from first draft to final polish. Playwrights may request to work with a specific program dramaturge. The Colony also provides a small resident company of professional actors who are especially skilled in reading new work.
Eligible submissions include works proposed by:
- emerging or established playwrights,
- theatres and play development centres, and
- translators who are translating Canadian and international plays into English.
