Toowoomba Repertory Theatre Play Writing Competition
Toowoomba Rep. has initiated this competition to foster and encourage new
and experienced playwrights, whether amateur or professional.
The play scripts will be judged anonymously by an experienced reading panel
who will establish a short list. The shortlisted plays will then be evaluated
by three industry professionals who will prepare written feedback to the playwrights
on their scripts, as well as providing guidance for the selection of the two winners of our competition.
The two winning plays will undergo a six month review process
led by a professional dramaturge appointed by the Rep. Theatre.
The intention is to provide input to the playwrights to assist in the further development
of their scripts as needed and getting them to stage-readiness.
The winning plays will be performed during the 2018 Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers
for a ten night season. The two winning playwrights will be awarded their cash prizes
on the final performance evening.

Stage Presentation will take place on 17 to 20, 24 to 29 September 2018
