We are currently seeking submissions of scripts for production, short performance pieces for our Cabaret evening and applications from storytellers interested in participating. Our focus this year is work that falls under the theme of Resistance. All submissions must be from Canadian self-identified woman artists. Technical and set requirements must be minimal due to the festival setting. A reading committee will assess submissions in order to program a balanced festival.
