Playwriting Australia is proud to support fifteen new plays in November and December 2016.
In our second New Play Development submission round for 2016 we received applications from individual playwrights and theatre company nominations for non-Anglo playwrights. We were especially pleased to see an increase in submissions from Western Australia and 60% of submissions were from female playwrights.
