To submit a play to be uploaded as a Theatre Alberta eScript, you must:

- be a Theatre Alberta member;
- be from, a resident of, or a former* resident of Alberta (*at least one year);
- your play must have been produced at least once in Alberta, but has not been published. (Yes - fringe festival productions are acceptable.)

If an eScript does become published in book form, Theatre Alberta's Library will remove the eScript from our website. It is your responsibility to notify Theatre Alberta if your play becomes published.

    Unlike the other titles in our Library, eScripts provides you the opportunity to provide more information to users to help "sell" your script. Information inputed below will appear as a listing in our Library blog feed, and will be linked to your play listing on our eScripts webpage.

    Information listed here is at your discretion - provide as much or as little as you think will help convince users to browse through your work. This is your art - take a few minutes to celebrate it below!

  • Use the space below to provide more information about the story, setting, characters and other aspects of your play that the audience should know. If you have indicated that the script uses actor doubling for multiple characters, include your suggestions on how the roles should be divided.
    Please provide more information about the play's previous production(s). Include year it was first produced, city, producing company and (if applicable) festival. You may also wish to include the cast and crew from the debut production.
