2019 Playwriting Contest NOW OPEN!!!

Our 2019 Playwriting Contest is now open! Please see our contest page for more details.

As always, we look forward to receiving plays of many different genres from playwrights across the province! Though NotaBle Acts is an English-language playwriting contest, we are more than happy to receive translated works from New Brunswick’s wide and artistically rich francophone theatrical community.

The deadline for submissions is April 23rd, (Shakespeare’s Birthday).

Once more onto the breach, dear friends, once more!

That’s a wrap!

The 2018 NotaBle Acts Theatre Festival has ended as another great success thanks to the combined talents and effort of so very many. Thanks to all of our playwrights, actors, directors, designers, and crew for bringing to life sixteen great new plays by New Brunswick playwrights.

Thanks to our sponsors: the Province of New Brunswick, the Government of Canada (Canadian Heritage Department), the City of Fredericton, Downtown Fredericton Inc., the University of New Brunswick Faculty of Arts and Department of English, and Picaroons Traditional Ales. Thanks also to our venue partners: UNB, the Picaroons Roundhouse, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, and the Fredericton Playhouse.

And thanks above all to our fantastic audiences for coming out in great numbers to support all of our shows and artists. See you next year!
