Page to Stage Recap

Page to Stage Recap

As part of our efforts to create a playwriting culture that reflects the whole of Australia, Playwriting Australia created the Page to Stage program in partnership with the National Theatre of Parramatta in October 2016. Page to Stage is a high level training program which provides a unique opportunity for emerging writers in Western Sydney. Over the course of a year, ten playwrights took part in an intensive playwriting course, that included mentorship and script development, with award-winning playwright, Donna Abela. In November 2017, four of these playwrights were selected to have a further play development week with a full creative team including, actors, a director and dramaturg. The play development week ended with a well-received public reading at Riverside Theatre.
