We are currently accepting original short play submissions.

Submissions close on July 10.
The festival's chosen works, along with others from invited playwrights,

We look forward to reading the stories and narratives that you have to share.
It's time to re•discover the history that precedes us.
QUARANTINE TABLE SERIES
10 weeks of exploring isolation... together.
Quarantine Table Series: A Series of Virtual Readings with Saudade Theatre
Thank you to all who joined our weekly Quarantine Table Series from March 29 - May 31
and participated in the post-show discussions.
Every Sunday, you helped open up a safe space to share enlightening stories and perhaps gain new perspectives. Together, we explored plays that placed isolated human beings at the centre of a struggle against an invisible enemy - a theme ever more prominent now than when the Series began.
An extended thanks to the talented actors who brought these stories to life directly from their homes.
A thank you to Ditado Music who gifted us with his stunning LIVE music.
A thank you to Sofia Couceiro and Austin Brown for the behind the scenes shots.
