Announcing the 2015 NBActs Playwriting Competition!


The NotaBle Acts Theatre Company is now looking for submissions for its fourteenth annual province-wide playwriting competition. Contest winners will have their work featured as part of the 2015 NotaBle Acts Summer Theatre Festival, to be held in Fredericton, July 22nd – August 2nd.

The contest deadline is April 23rd 2015 – Shakespeare’s birthday!

New Brunswick playwrights have the opportunity to submit work in four categories, one for 15-30 minute site-specific plays, one for 7-10 minute short plays and another for 30-50 minute one-act plays. Lastly, there is a new category exclusively for high school student playwrights, for 20-30 minute one-act plays. Three winners from the site-specific category will be selected and produced, along with four winners from the short play category and up to four winners from the one-act category.

In addition to having their work produced at the festival, all winning playwrights will receive a cash prize and mentoring from an established playwright.
