The South Australian Playwrights Theatre is committed to developing and producing the works of local South Australian writers, both established and new.
We seek to nurture a racially and culturally diverse community of playwrights, directors, actors and technical specialists to hone their craft and to network creative opportunities.
We seek to encourage content that reflects the rich cultural and racial diversity of South Australia. Through this work we want to engage with our diverse communities and give them a voice on stage.
It’s time to tell our stories, and to hell with the consequences.
We will actively seek South Australian plays at all stages of development, from first draft to final script. We will endeavour to advise new writers and encourage writers in other media including prose, poetry and screen to apply their ideas to the stage. We feel the stage is a vital forum for testing ideas and establishing a multi generational audience passionate about seeing and hearing South Australian stories .
