Members of the blind jury selecting the top 3 play submissions.

The winner was chosen by a blind jury that was tasked with evaluating each play based on a number of factors including whether a submission contained positive queer content. The jury was very impressed by the calibre of the submissions and choosing the winner between the top three was especially difficult.
The final results are:

Winner: UNSEX’d by Jay Whitehead & Daniel Judes

Runner Up: DAGMAR AVENUE / HOUSE OF DREAMS by Adam Meisner

Honourable Mention: FINISHING THE SUIT by Lawrence Aronovitch

UNSEX’d will be workshopped for two days next week, March 19th & 20th. Playwright Jay Whitehead will be in attendance and the workshop will be directed by Kate Newby.

A public performance will follow the workshop in the evening on March 20th at 7:30pm at Lunchbox Theatre’s TransCanada Stage.
