ADVANCE THEATRE: NEW WORKS BY DIVERSE WOMEN

web site

Ruby Slippers Theatre in partnership with the Vancouver Fringe Festival and Playwrights Guild of Canada proudly present:

ADVANCE THEATRE: NEW WORKS BY DIVERSE WOMEN

Deadline: February 15, 2018
According to a national study, in the Canadian theatre industry women account for 33% of the artistic directors, 34% of the working directors, and 27% of the produced playwrights. These numbers are even lower if you look specifically at the large regional theatres and summer festivals. And the numbers plummet further when you factor in diversity (cultural background, age, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability).

If you are a playwright and your play is chosen to participate in the Advance Theatre: New Works by Diverse Women festival, Ruby Slippers Theatre and the Fringe Festival will cover the costs of all rehearsals prior to the day of the reading, your technical rehearsal, promotion, theatrical venue on Granville Island, and all artists’ fees.

If you are a director who wishes to participate, send us your resume and cover letter for consideration.

Playwrights: please send your play synopsis, brief bio, and a maximum ten-page script excerpt to: diane@rubyslippers.ca.

This is a curated process for women playwrights and directors living and working in Canada. Priority will be given to diversity.
