Playwrights, this is your chance to shine! Playtime Staged Readings aims to identify, support and develop new talent and get queer issues out there for mainstream audiences to consider and enjoy.
The LGBTQIA+ community is diverse, exciting and full of stories and ideas that deserve to be heard on the stages of performing arts venues throughout the country. This is the chance you have been waiting for to tell a bold, funny, new, important or exciting story to Australian theatre audiences.
Three to six works will be selected by the industry panel, and invited to present a 15-minute staged reading as part of Midsumma 2018. One work will be selected to receive ongoing support and development to become a full-scale work and be presented at Midsumma 2019.
The ultimate aim of Playtime is to tour the work nationally to expose it to a wide range of metropolitan, regional and rural audiences.
