Dear <<First Name>>,
Theatre by the Bay is now accepting playwriting submissions for its Emerging Director Project presented with support of The City of Barrie, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and the RBC Emerging Artist Project. This opportunity is exclusively for playwrights from within the Simcoe-Muskoka region.
Two playwrights will work with TBTB’s RBC Emerging Directors to develop shows that will be presented through live-streamed performances for audiences across the world to enjoy.
As part of Theatre by the Bay’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, global majority (BIPOC) emerging artists from Simcoe County (land covered by Treaties 16, 18 and Williams) are actively encouraged to apply.
From the pool of applicants, participants will be selected by the RBC Emerging Directors. The chosen playwrights will meet regularly with their respective director to develop the script in a spirit of collaboration. After a few months of collaboration, the playwright’s script will be rehearsed, professionally staged, and then presented virtually at the Five Points Theatre. Performances will occur in late-July 2021.
