Opportunities for Artists and Playwrights

Introducing Yourself To Tarragon

Tarragon Theatre has an almost fifty-year history of developing new Canadian plays. At any given time, we have plays that are just beginning, plays in their mid-life in workshops, and plays in production. We are always seeking out exceptional theatre artists – playwrights, directors, actors, designers and dramaturgs – and we offer a variety of opportunities at the theatre.

See below to find out more information about specific programs we offer to playwrights/creators and actors.

If you’ve checked out our programs and still have questions, or would like more general information please contact  patronservices@tarragontheatre.com

Playwrights & Theatre Creators

Tarragon Theatre offers a host of play development programs to support playwrights, theatre creators and their plays, and is always on the lookout for new voices and new work. While Tarragon does not accept unsolicited script submissions, we welcome contact from interested playwrights and theatre creators.

If you wish to introduce yourself and your ideas to Tarragon, please contact Myekah Payne at AAD@tarragontheatre.com

 

If you are presenting your play, either as a reading or a full production, feel free to invite a member of artistic staff to a performance. Please include a brief introduction of yourself and your company, as well as a synopsis of your play and a complete list of reading/performance dates (if applicable).
