Script Submissions

BTW is a developmental theatre company and we are always on the lookout for new works.

Yearly we produce 1 Mainstage, 1 TYA play as well as a stage reading of a new work that fits with our mission:

The mission of Black Theatre Workshop is to encourage and promote the development of a Black and Canadian Theatre, rooted in a literature that reflects the creative will of Black Canadian writers and artists, and the creative collaborations between Black and other artists.  BTW aims to promote and produce Black theatre that educates, entertains and delights its audiences. The company strives to create a greater cross-cultural understanding by its presence and the intrinsic value of its work.

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

  • Information on the development history or production history of your play
