The ProjectTableau D’Hôte Theatre invites you to submit to Resilience – a series of staged readings featuring Montréal's theatre school graduates of 2020 – presented from March 9th to 21st, 2021 at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts. Moved and inspired by the spirited resilience of the many theatre school grads whose works were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Tableau D’Hôte Theatre presents a special performance event in their honour. From the loss and digitalization of their final student productions comes a community celebration of their academic artistic work – live, in-person, and on a professional stage.How it Works Emerging playwrights are invited to submit their original works to the staged play reading series through this application form until the deadline of Monday, January 4th, 2021. (To submit as an actor, director, stage manager, designer, or technician, click HERE.) Although the Resilience series primarily features new grads from Montréal's professional theatre training schools, submissions from all self-identifying emerging playwrights will also be considered. Priority, nonetheless, will be given to writers from the Class of 2020 who are based in Québec. Racialized, Queer, Neurodiverse, and Disabled Playwrights are also strongly encouraged to apply. Submitted text must be in English or bilingual and be a minimum of 10 minutes in reading length (there is no maximum length). Works may be either a short piece, a full-length play, an excerpt of a play, or a work in progress. Although we are accepting submissions of unproduced/undeveloped work, priority will be given to scripts that have undergone extensive development and/or production treatments. Upon receipt of all submissions, Tableau D’Hôte Theatre will announce its script selections for the series in January of 2021. All applicants will be contacted to be notified of their individual results. Cohorts of selected artists will meet to rehearse and perform the staged readings (between march 9th - 21st) with the guidance of a professional director from the Montréal theatre community. Each staged reading will require 8-16 hours of rehearsal time from each cohort, which will culminate in a total of 2-3 showcase performances at the Segal Centre. In addition to the general public, Montréal's top artistic directors and agents will be invited to attend the event. The goal of the series is to provide the participating artists with a professional working opportunity that will give them an opening into the industry and into the wider performing arts community.How to SubmitAll applying playwrights are required to submit the following: An artist CV outlining your relevant training, skills, and experiences.
