nEWs! Submissions open!!

Hey everyone! 


Our submissions are open again. This time I’ll leave them open until May 2014. Make sure to get your submissions in to the submittable:


I’m booking up the 2014 season now.


Our last show of 2013 is on November 12th! I hope to see everyone out!


All the best,


OPULENT OCTOBER! Coming soon to a bar near me!

Hey everyone,


Well, Duffy’s Tavern is no longer really “The Bar Near Me” but it’s still relatively close. Westenders and Eastenders who like to travel, come on out on October 8th to see some great people read!



It’s going to be a fun night for our second show of the Fall season. David Peter Clark, Evan Ferguson, Michael Collins, and Hannah Peck are all really interesting writers and well polished for still qualifying as “Emerging”. 


The show usually wraps up around 10/10:30, and of course, people are invited to stay out after the show as long as their weary heads and livers can handle it!


All the best and see you there,


BIG on Bloor Info!

Check out the EVENT!

And here are the sets! Image

Hope to see you Saturday and Sunday at the Dufferin and Bloor Tennis Courts for our EW showcase!


Thanks for all the support!
