Call for Submissions at the Watermark


Call For Submissions – New Plays in Development by PEI Playwrights
Watermark Theatre in association with PARC (Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre) is calling for submissions of new non-musical plays from PEI playwrights to be included in Watermark’s 2020 Play Reading Series during the month of August 2020 at the theatre in North Rustico, PEI.

Plays must:
– be written by playwrights who currently reside in PEI or were born or previously lived in PEI but currently reside elsewhere
– be unpublished and must not have had a professional production (previous workshop or Fringe productions are fine)
– be non-musicals
– have a cast size of 8 or less
– be submitted in English (although portions of the play may be in another language)

Plays can be of any topic or genre the playwright chooses. Each playwright may submit no more than two scripts. Plays that were submitted in previous years are ineligible.

Please send submissions of plays along with a playwright biography, short synopsis of the play, brief description of development history (how long you have been working on it, draft number, further work you think it needs), and contact information by e-mail to

Deadline for submissions is March 6th, 2020.

Playwrights of the plays selected will be notified by March 30th, 2020.

For more information please contact Andrea Surich at 902‐963‐3963 or
