Witness staged readings of brand new queer theatre works
The annual Queer Playwriting Award (previously Playtime Staged Readings), is a collaboration between Gasworks Arts Park and Midsumma Festival, and part of the Midsumma Presents Program.
This development program aims to identify, support and develop new playwriting 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.
Experience fresh excerpts of four new works pre-selected from our top eight finalists:
- Recollection by Georgia Ketels
- Every Lovely Terrible Thing by Adam Fawcett
- Coming Out by Lucy Holz
- Mummy's Boy by Patrick Livesey.
See queer issues and voices represented on stage, engage with new playwriting talent and have your say in the 2021 Award selection.
Gasworks asks that visitors wear a mask in the theatres, as you may be seated next to other guests whom you may not know.
The theatre will be open 30 minutes prior to showtime, please arrive early so we can scan you in.
