Script Submissions

BTW is a developmental theatre company and we are always on the lookout for new works. Yearly we produce 2 – 3 Mainstage shows, 1 TYA play as well as a stage reading of a new work that fits with our mission:

Black Theatre Workshop (BTW) is Canada’s longest running theatre company dedicated to the works of Black and diasporic communities. BTW’s mission is to promote and produce outstanding theatre that educates, entertains and inspires. The company strives to create greater cross-cultural understanding by challenging its audience and the status quo. Expanding the representation of Black Canadian artists, BTW bridges cultural divides – uniting hearts, minds and communities.

While our focus is on work by Black Canadian playwrights, we will on occasion produce work that still fits our mission but from a non-Canadian or non-Black playwright.

If you would like to submit your play, please include:

  • Your script
  • Your biography (please feel free to self identify your cultural background)
  • Information on the development history or production history of your play
  • A summary of the play (max 500 words)
  • A cast breakdown
  • Your full mailing address, telephone and email address

Playwrights are welcome to send their scripts to the address below.
Please send in Word or PDF attachment only.
File name must consist of your Title and draft #.

Due to the volume of submissions, only those playwrights whose work is being considered will be contacted.
