Evolution is looking for new plays. At this time, we are particularly interested in scripts by Ottawa based women writers. There is no restriction on subject matter, historical, political, or contemporary, nor is there any restriction on style of presentation: monologue, storytelling, or a collectively created work.

A look at past productions can be found here.

Please submit plays that have reached at least the first draft stage of development. When you submit, please include your CV, a synopsis of the piece, the plot, characters, and premise of your play.

Please provide an outline of any workshops, readings, or small festival productions that have been a part of the play’s development such as the Ottawa Fringe, Fresh Meat, or undercurrents. Plays that have already had a professional production are not the focus of this particular call.

Evolution Theatre has a reading committee and we will respond to your submission in due course.

Again, we are primarily looking for scripts by Ottawa based female playwrights or theatre creators.

Please submit your script in PDF form to Laurie Fyffe at ad@evolutiontheatre.ca by December 15, 2017.

If you have questions, please address them to Laurie at ad@evolutiontheatre.ca.
