In Plays

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

We love nothing more than seeing playwrights and their plays we have supported blossom from simple pages to must-see productions. In 2018 there is a great selection of plays we’ve supported into production. From Perth to Adelaide to the Illawarra, we’ve got eight months of your year covered, with plays you can’t miss.

Please get in touch with us if your play was supported by Playwriting Australia in the past but has not be listed below. See you at the theatre!
