Call for Submissions: Creator/Performers for Theatre Relay, ChickenWing Theatre and Slumgum & Quaqua

Presented by ChickenWing Theatre and Slumgum & Quaqua

Producer: Julia Haist
Collaborating Director: Shayne Monaghan

The Theatre Relay is a project designed for emerging theatre artists to keep their creative muscles in shape. Participants will each create a 7-10 minute solo piece around one central pre-determined theme. After being given opportunities to share and workshop their ideas, they will then pass their piece on to be performed by another artist and direct the performance of their piece, as well as performing the work of someone else. These works will then be brought together as part of a showcase to be presented in front of an audience.

Are you seeking an opportunity to gain experience and hone skills in writing, workshopping, directing and performing, as well as have your work be seen by a larger audience, meet new artists and foster new working relationships? Well then, here’s what we want to see from you:


  • Your theatrical resume and/or bio (please include contact information)
  • 1-2 pages max. of original writing (ideally something that showcases an ability to write for a single performer)
  • 1 page max. explanation of your artistic background, the work you’re interested in creating and why you’d like to be a part of this project.

Please email submissions and/or queries to:

The deadline for submissions is March 31st, 2014. Participants will be required to be available for a few dates throughout April, May and June. If you are unavailable for any specific dates between April 18th and June 15th, please specify in your submission.
