A new initiative by Queensland Theatre will hand over the keys to the company’s intimate black box space, the Diane Cilento Studio, providing independent Queensland theatre-makers with the opportunity to make and stage new productions.

Named Door 3, after the signage on the studio door, the program is currently open to expressions of interest from Queensland-based individuals, collectives and/or companies.
