Indulge Your Dramatic Side

Submissions of short screenplays, radio plays, scenes, or one-act plays. submissions are limited to 5 pages, with a limit of 3 submissions per person.

Submissions will be adjudicated by a panel of judges. The winner will be announced at the beginning of the winter term. The winner will receive two tickets to a live performance of their choice from either English Theatre, Indigenous Theatre, or Dance at the NAC or the production of their choice at GCTC that takes place during the winter term.

This year’s theme or writing prompt is “Coming Back”, which could refer to how the idea of coming back manifests. It could be coming back to in-person classes, live theatre performances, or any iteration of coming back (from the pandemic, from shopping, from the dead…see where your imagination takes you!)

The deadline for submissions is December 31st.
