The Major Matt Mason Collective presents

The Wildfire National Playwriting Competition

What is it?

We want to read awesome plays by young Canadian playwrights and we are willing to offer cash money!

We are looking for playwrights 30 years of age or under to submit fresh, young scripts that embrace risk, grit and evocation.

The two winning scripts selected by our jury will receive a cash prize and the possibility of being further developed with the collective.

We are a scrappy little company that believes the conversation between young theatre artists is vital in order for fresh, exciting theatre to continue in this country.
Over the three years the competition has run we have been able to award over $3,500 to young playwrights across the country as well as stage five workshop readings of winning plays.
All three years of these awards have been solely funded by house parties, online crowd sourcing, and the support of the Sage Theatre.
Thank you to everyone who has helped support Wildfire over the years, we quite literally couldn't do it without you.
