This year's final selections are: 

Leading Ladies by Sandra Bell

Two fellow actresses who have been friends for years humorously lament the dearth of older female roles in Shakespeare’s plays. While doing so the chance of one role coming up threatens to derail their comradery with comic repercussions. Two females needed, 40-60 years old.

Zeus in a Zoot Suit by Sue Rose

This play is a warm, thoughtful journey of self-discovery.  Worried that her father might have had a heart attack, Dr. Adeline Lewis shares the waiting room with several others, all with their own unique view on life. From an avid puzzle retiree to a tipsy Santa, none challenge Addy’s perceptions more than her own estranged sister’s take on their family dynamic. Three females needed; 2 (30-40 years), 1 (25 or older). Three males needed; 1 (50 or older), 2 (30-40 years).

For those interested the plays are available for reading only (no reproducing in any form). To request a copy please contact Stephanie at:

Script Happens, a development program of the Saint John Theatre Company, is designed to provide an avenue to foster the growth of emerging Maritime playwrights, directors as well as actors.
