An exciting collection of new plays for development in the Rex Cramphorn Studio this October.
The National Script Workshop is Playwriting Australia’s most popular and valuable opportunity for playwrights with a new play in development. From one-day play reading with immediate dramaturgical feedback, to an intensive week or fortnight workshop, we offer selected playwrights the time, space and expertise from outstanding creatives and actors to take their play closer to the stage. Workshopped plays are also in consideration for showcase at the National Play Festival each year.
For their October residency, Playwriting Australia is thrilled to support three new plays part of the seven selected works chosen from 99 script submissions, open to playwrights nationally as well nominations by theatre companies working with playwrights from diverse cultural backgrounds.
The three selected playwrights Gita Bezard, Joe Lui and Melissa Reeves will work on their new plays with PWA's Artistic Director Tim Roseman, Associate Artist Iain Sinclair and guests artists across two weeks from Monday 6 October - Friday 17 October.
