In News, Plays

Each year Playwriting Australia invests in the development of exceptional new Australian plays.

Here at Playwriting Australia we love nothing more than seeing the plays and playwrights we’ve supported, flourish. We are very excited to see a great selection of plays we’ve supported making it into production in 2015. From Brisbane to Perth, here is the list of the plays we have proudly nurtured through our various new play development programs. Don’t forget to mark them in your calendar as must-see productions this year.

Please get in touch with us if your play was supported by Playwriting Australia in the past but is not listed below. Remember to send us the link to the event and the production image.

See you at theatre in 2015 to celebrate some of our country’s most acclaimed playwrights!
