Persephone Theatre has a proud history of supporting Canadian playwrights by developing and premiering new work. We accept submissions from emerging and established writers.
Unsolicited submissions are reviewed by Literary Manager Johnna Wright and are kept on file. We are unable to provide dramaturgical feedback unless a script is being considered for production. We will acknowledge receipt of your submission, and will get in touch after that if we need more information.
Persephone Theatre is housed in the Remai Arts Centre, a fully-equipped purpose-built theatre. Our 410-seat MainStage is a proscenium venue with a fly gallery. Our ~120-seat BackStage Stage is a flexible black-box space. Persephone is an IATSE house and engages professional designers under the terms of the ADC.

Our 2019/20 Guest Company, Ferre Play Theatre, debuted in our BackStage Stage to critical acclaim with their inaugural production of Margaret Atwood’s The Penelopiad.
