Calling All Playwrights

Twenty Something Theatre is seeking new one-act plays by emerging and/or young playwrights to be part of a series of play readings to take place in conjunction with our fall programming. Check out our 2015 fall productions here: 

Dedicated to new play development, over the past 5 years Twenty Something Theatre has produced the World Premiere’s of Prodigals (2011) and Us & Everything We Own (2013) by Sean Minogue. Currently in development is Julie McIsaac’s The Out Vigil set to premiere in March 2016 at the Firehall Arts Centre.

  • Plays must be no longer than approximately 60 mins in length
  • Plays must not have been previously read, staged or performed publicly; however, a play that has been through a workshop process and/or had a public reading but has been significantly rewritten since will be accepted.
  • Applicants must be between the ages of 18-35 OR must not have had a play previously produced by a professional theatre company in Canada. 
Each play submitted will receive written feedback from Artistic Producer Sabrina Evertt and/or Associate Artistic Producer Brian Cochrane.

Between 4 - 8 plays will be selected to receive a public staged reading that will take place on selected dates between October 23rd – November 29th at the Havana Theatre following the performance of one of our main stage fall productions.


All plays must be hard copies submitted via mail, accompanied by a reading/administration fee of $20 made out to Twenty Something Theatre Society, and sent to:

Twenty Something Theatre
c/o 102 – 1565 W. 16th Avenue
Vancouver, BC V6J 2L7

Please include name, email and phone number along with a 75-word bio about your background & experience as well as any history of the play, if applicable.

You many submit more than one play; however, each play is required to have a separate reading/administration fee of $20.


Submissions must be postmarked no later than July 24, 2015.
