Playwrights Theatre Centre / Vancouver Fringe Festival

Deadline: October 4, 2019

Applications for the 2020 Fringe New Play Prize are open.

The Vancouver Fringe Festival and Playwrights Theatre Centre are calling for applications for the eighth year of the Fringe New Play Prize. Through the Fringe New Play Prize, PTC and the Vancouver Fringe offer BC artists a leg up in the process of creating and producing with material support. BC writers and producing teams with a project underway for the 2020 Fringe season are encouraged to submit.

More information and how to apply

The program offers:

  • Eight months of dramaturgy with PTC Project Dramaturg Joanna Garfinkel
  • Some free creation and rehearsal space
  • A free spot in PTC’s how-to-produce-theatre seminar series, Block P
  • A free and guaranteed space on the Fringe Mainstage, September 2020.

All told, the Fringe New Play Prize is a juicy package with a $5000 value: ($800 Fringe application fee + $1000 in studio space + $3000 of dramaturgy + script copying + promotion). The production costs are the responsibility of the applicant.
