Playwriting Australia selects 7 new works for the National Script Workshop

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, playwrights are offered 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.

In this round, the seven selected works were drawn from 99 script submissions, open to playwrights nationally as well nominations by theatre companies working with playwrights from diverse cultural backgrounds. For the first time, two opportunities were reserved exclusively for WA playwrights, with a session of the workshops held in Perth at the State Theatre Centre of WA in August.
