Call for Submissions (National): Scripts on Fire New Play Competition


Fire Exit Theatre (www.fireexit.ca) exists to create conversations around faith; what you believe and don’t believe about God and death and life and all that happens in between. We believe that everyone is on a spiritual journey, whether they know it or not. We believe that life is hard and God is good and that choosing to live in that tension creates the best stories.

We want to hear your stories around this theme.

We love comedy and drama and multi-media and family-friendly and not suitable for all audiences. We love to explore the final taboo in theatre – God. Get writing! We can’t wait to read your story.
The competition is open to full-length (no less than 80 mins) plays written by residents of Canada.
Entry is limited to one submission per author. The script must be written in English. The script must be original.

Adaptations of other works will not be accepted. Musicals will not be accepted. Copyright remains with the author.

The script must be accompanied by a non-refundable $50.00 CDN entry fee. Adjudication will be completed by three independent jurors. The jurors’ decisions are final. All scripts will be judged anonymously. Identity of the playwrights is withheld from jurors until final winners are decided.

DEADLINE: December 31st, 2019 at 23:59 MST
