Playwriting competition

As we begin to look to the future of theatre in a post-COVID 19 environment, the Australian Shakespeare Company is pleased to offer the unique opportunity for emerging playwrights to submit a new dramatic work of any length and genre.

All submissions will be read and one selected from each age division will be work- shopped for a public rehearsed reading by a professional cast. 

The competition is now open and will close by midday on the 1st of October 2020. Please send your piece along with the play submission form to: admin@shakespeareaustralia.com.au 

There are two competition divisions:

  • Up to 21
  • 22 and over
