Call for Submissions - Emerging Playwrights
Thanks to the generous support of the RBC Foundation, Eastern Front is pleased to announce our latest initiative, the 2019 RBC Emerging Playwrights Program.
Starting in September 2019, this program will help four new Atlantic Canadian playwrights to develop work guided by a dramaturge, an established playwright mentor and other theatre professionals. Eastern Front Theatre will present the works at a public reading at EFT’s annual STAGES Theatre Festival in May 2020.
We are inviting and encouraging all emerging playwrights from Atlantic Canada to apply.
Are you passionate about the arts? Are you looking to get involved in the cultural scene in Halifax? Here is your chance to be part of the action and use your expertise to further Eastern Front's mandate of supporting and producing Atlantic Canadian artists.
