About Us

Playwriting Australia seeks, develops and champions new Australian stories for the stage.

Playwriting Australia is the national organisation working with playwrights and theatre artists from all backgrounds and at all levels of their careers. We connect talent with opportunity to extend the art of playwriting. We advocate for positive change on behalf of artists, industry and audiences.

Since 2007, Playwriting Australia has been the national leader in the development of new plays. We seek out work of uncommon promise from writers of singular vision and interrogate, pummel, promote and celebrate its potential.

Our aim is clear: to ensure the quality of work on Australia’s stages is the very best it can be. I passionately believe that playwrights imagine the world anew for us. But vivid ideas alone don’t make a great play.

Playwriting Australia’s extensive development models surround writers with the opportunity to push at the boundaries of their craft. We look to the future: to the wealth of stories we want to see produced; to the vast range of voices currently absent from our stages; to a fusion of craft and vision equal to anywhere in the world; to a society where our playwrights are cultural beacons.
