2018 Playwriting Contest

2018 Playwriting Contest Open for Submissions

Submit your play before April 23rd to have it considered for the 2018 NotaBle Acts Summer Theatre Festival.

It’s that time of year again when NotaBle Acts looks for new submissions to its annual playwriting contest! Winners will be performed during our 2018 Summer Theatre Festival held from July 25th to August 5th.

Plays from the general public are accepted in three categories:

  • Site-Specific – short plays taking place and performed at specific locations around Fredericton.
  • Street Theatre – short skits performed in a showcase together outdoors and at various venues throughout the festival.
  • Acting Out – One act plays between 30 and 50 minutes in length, performed in theatre.

Plays should be submitted by post and postmarked by no later April 23rd (Shakespeare’s Birthday).

In addition, submissions are still open to our Middle and High School Playwriting Contest! Middle and high school students are encouraged to submit their work to nbacts@unb.ca. Middle school submissions should be between 5-10 minutes long, and high school 20-30 minutes. Winners will be read during the Festival and subsequently produced and performed during the coming fall.

Full contest rules can be found at NBActs.com.   Send inquires to nbacts@unb.ca or you can reach our Artistic Director Len Falkenstein at (506) 458 7406.

May the furious writing (or rewriting) commence!
