A word from our Director of Submissions
Dana Trottier has a pile of plays on his desk!
I am thrilled and overwhelmed by the submissions we are receiving for our next three seasons. It is exciting to read the creative interpretations of our seasonal themes. As an actor and director myself, I am eager to jump into the rehearsal process for Spring’s RENEWAL as so many unique characters are coming across my desk. It will be a challenging yet fun process for the submissions committee to narrow the multiple submissions down to 5 - 7 pieces per theme. There is still time to submit if you are interested! We are accepting submissions through February 25th for RENEWAL, BURNED, and ABUNDANCE.

Congratulations Stephen Kaplan!
FOR UNTO US goes on to success.
Stephen's play FOR UNTO US had its reading premiere in Four Quarter Theater's inaugural season WINTER. It featured two five-year-olds with unusual candor discussing the reason for the season. Since then, it has gone on to an amazing life: Stephen's play has had four more readings and eight productions, even winning Best Play at the Acadia University MiniFest play festival and earning second place at Storefront Theatre's We Like Short-Shorts Festival. Congratulations, Stephen!
