Industry Listing, Submission.


The Storefront Theatre is looking for the next great Canadian Playwrights.

We are on the hunt for the best in Toronto’s Indie Theatre Scene. Kick in with the revolutionaries at the Storefront and join our inaugural Playwright’s Unit.

Cast size, content, and scope don’t frighten us. We’re looking for bold, gritty plays for the twitter generation. We’re particularly interested in works that fall into a genre or style (e.g. film noir, gangster, western, docu-drama, etc).

The unit will run from June 2015 to May 2016 with monthly meetings in Toronto, culminating in a week of public performances. We offer our playwrights professional workshops and the support of our dramaturg.

Requirements for submission:

  • Full-length excerpts of your work (whatever you feel best represents your work and/or the project you’re interested in working on with us)
  • A brief cover letter that tells us about you, your artist’s statement and why you think Storefront would be a good fit for you
  • Script proposals and story boards also accepted if you don’t yet have a fully developed script

Submissions or questions about the unit can be sent to Emma Mackenzie Hillier at Deadline for submissions is March 31, 2015.

Please note that the unit is by invitation only, submission does not guarantee a spot.
