CAPE BRETON STAGE COMPANY SEEKING SCRIPTS

on

For production in their 2010/11 season

A non-profit theatre co-op, The Cape Breton Stage Company has been producing original, local work in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality since 2007.  This season, we will produce three plays in downtown Sydney, Nova Scotia.  We welcome submissions from playwrights with any level of experience.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

Original, preferably unproduced, scripts by Atlantic Canadian playwrights. We will consider plays with any tone or subject matter. We tend to favour plays with small casts and straightforward production requirements.

You may submit a script in progress, but do not send proposals, summaries, or excerpts; we require a complete draft to evaluate your submission properly.

As a co-operative, we exercise collective artistic input with all our projects. Playwrights should bear this artistic spirit in mind, and should be open to having CBSC artists contribute to script development after their plays have been selected for production, although playwrights will retain final authority over their scripts.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:

Submissions may be emailed (Word or PDF format preferred) to info@capestage.ca. Please include “Script Search” in your email’s subject heading.

You may also mail your script to the following address. If you want your script returned, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

Cape Breton Stage Company

142 Cabot Street

Sydney, Nova Scotia

Canada

B1P 4E1

Please include your contact info, along with a brief bio (100 words). If your script is still in progress, you may also include a description of your plans for future development.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: July 30, 2010.
