Each year, through the generous support of Suncor, Lunchbox Theatre is able to workshop scripts through the Suncor Energy Stage One Festival, our new play development series. All chosen playwrights will receive dramaturgical support, a workshop with a professional director and actors and, depending on the stage of development, either a closed or public reading.
Lunchbox Theatre currently invites playwrights to submit one-act plays for consideration. All plays must eventually run approximately 50 minutes. Submissions are not limited to comedies and musicals but content should be suitable for Lunchbox Theatre audiences – excessive use of foul language or nudity may limit the possibility of production.
