Playwrights @ TAG Festival - Submissions

posterPlaywrights @ TAG is a fun filled non-competitive festival providing members with the chance to experience and enjoy the thrill and agony of writing a script and see it performed for an audience.

No prior experience is necessary just a desire to write!

No prizes or adjudication will occur. All in fun!

This will be our fourth installment of Playwrights @ TAG. For some background… a few of the plays from the Playwrights @TAG Festival have gone on to perform in other festivals: The Liverpool International Theatre Festival, the Boardmore Theatre Festival and the Halifax Fringe Festival.

If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at writing or have an idea for a story and want to see it on stage, don’t hesitate. Give it a try! Submission Deadline December 31st 2018
