Persephone Theatre is moving forward with plans for a future season in a way that is safe and appropriate.
Until further notice and in response to the global pandemic auditions will be held through online video conferencing or self-tape submissions. If you are unable to provide a self-tape due to technical challenges or any other difficulties please contact us immediately. We will do our best to facilitate and/or accommodate any needs that may arise from this unprecedented time.
As the CAEA e-drive is temporarily shut down, please keep checking this page for updated information.

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 Artistic Associate, Jennica Grienke 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.
