BSMT Dwellers Playwrighting Competition

Theatre BSMT wants to read the horrors you are writing about! The horror theatre genre is an exciting creative playground, so if you have a script you feel fits with the Theatre BSMT mandate, send it our way!
The winning submissions receive workshop support, a cash prize and are considered for future Theatre BSMT programming. Theatre BSMT is Calgary's only Horror Theatre company and we believe it is important to help grow the genre by fostering an environment where The strange and unusual are more than welcome.
