Suncor Energy Stage One Festival

Submissions for 2014/2015

Each year, with the generous support of Suncor, Lunchbox Theatre is able to workshop scripts through the Suncor Energy Stage One Festival. All chosen playwrights receive dramaturgical support, a workshop with a professional director and actors and either a closed or public reading, depending on the stage development. 

Lunchbox Theatre is currently inviting playwrights to submit one-act plays for consideration. All plays must eventually run approximately 50 minutes. Submissions are not limited to comedies and musicals but content should be suitable for Lunchbox Theatre audiences – excessive use of foul language or nudity may limit the possibility of production. 

Who Can Apply?

Anyone is allowed to apply. 

All applications should include: 

•    Playwright’s resume
•    History of any development the script has received thus far
•    Premise of the play
•    Plot outline for the basic structure of the play
•    Minimum of 15 pages of script for the piece being submitted

2014-2015 Deadline: February 28, 2015
