Call for Short Plays

Little Lion Theatre Company is looking for submissions from Canadian playwrights for our new play series launching Autumn, 2021.    With this series we are looking to strengthen our relationship with the Canadian theatre community by showcasing work in the UK by emerging Canadian artists.     The New Play Series is a night of plays curated around our theme "Stories From Home". We’ll be pairing each piece with a UK based director to be staged at one of London’s renowned pub theatres. Plays will be performed in either a “scratch” format or as a rehearsed reading.

This in an unpaid opportunity but all pieces will be filmed and photographed for the playwright’s portfolio. Feedback will also be collected from participants and audience to help with further development of each piece.


We encourage submissions from all individuals and welcome submissions from members of racialized groups/visible minorities, women, Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, persons of any sexual orientation, and persons of any gender expression. Any questions please feel free to email littleliontheatrecompany@gmail.com
