Troubadour Theatre Collective
2017/2018 Playwrights’ Unit

London, ON – Troubadour Theatre Collective is excited to announce its inaugural Playwrights’ Unit and submissions are now being accepted to be part of this exclusive initiative.

The TTC Playwrights’ Unit is a program designed to nurture promising playwrights with a particular interest in supporting writers who are living in the London / Middlesex area OR whose work explores themes relevant to the London area and community. The Unit has an emphasis on professional development and the business of being a professional playwright in Canada.
Running from October 2017 – May 2018, the selected writers will be given an opportunity to develop a new work through:

• monthly collaborative meetings in London, Ontario: an opportunity to hear their individual work read aloud and to discuss it with members of the Unit; an opportunity to exchange theatrical ideas and impulses;

• individualized dramaturgical support from two of Troubadour’s core artists: dramaturg Adam Corrigan-Holowitz and director/dramaturg Charlotte Gowdy;

• a full day Equity workshop with professional actors and director, culminating in a public staged reading of the script in May 2018.

Participants will be supported, challenged and guided with sensitivity and care throughout their creative process toward the completion of a full draft.

To be considered for the 2017/18 Playwrights’ Unit, please send:

• A cover letter introducing yourself, your specific theatrical interests, and an idea for a play that you would like to develop in the Unit (2 pages maximum);
• A resume (1 page maximum);
• A selection of your writing from a past play (10 page maximum)

Please submit materials (and inquiries) by email only to:
