Call for Participants: Playwriting Circle

Hosted by Realwheels Theatre

Calling all writers and playwrights for our Fall 2021 session!

Online sessions will lead participants through the playwriting process with a focus on story, dramatic action, character and dialogue. Participants will regularly share their writing and receive ongoing feedback and support in preparation for a public reading (online) with professional actors on December 4, 2021. 

This program is offered free of cost to beginning and emerging playwrights (or writers who would like to transition into playwriting) who identify with disability. 

Dates: Eleven weeks on Saturdays from Sept 18 to Dec 04, 10:00am PST to 12:15pm (excluding October 9th) 

Please apply by emailing connie@realwheels.ca with the subject line: Playwriting Circle 2021 and Connie will provide you with further instructions.

While this session is open to all Canadian residents, priority will be given to those living in BC.

Applications will be assessed and accepted on a rolling basis so be sure to get yours in early!

Organizations

Realwheels Theatre

Realwheels Theatre creates and produces performances that deepen understanding of the disability experience. We tell stories in which disability itself is not the focus of conflict, but rather forms the landscape upon which universal issues are debated onstage. Our vision is full inclusion and integration of disability both on – and off – Canadian stages; a barrier-free, diverse performing arts world that reflects the real world and all of its people.
