Playwrights | Queensland Theatre

We support playwrights to hone their work through commissions, dramaturgy and creative development. We also offer unique programs such as the Queensland Premier’s Drama Award and Playwrights Program.

Queensland Premier’s Drama Award

Queensland Theatre manages the QPDA, which runs on a two-year cycle and is open to writers and theatre-makers at any stage of their career. Finalists receive intensive script development opportunities and the winner also receives a world premiere production of their play in a Queensland Theatre season. For more info see: QPDA

Playwrights 18-26

Our Playwrights’ Program, for playwrights aged 18-26 years, combines a monthly working group and a range of professional development opportunities. For more info see Playwright's Program
