About us

 

Welcome to AustralianPlays.org, the world’s online showcase of the best Australian playwriting, featuring the combined catalogues of Australia's leading theatrical publishers.

Set up and managed by the Australian Script Centre, in collaboration with PlayWriting Australia, Currency Press and Playlab, we have designed this site to make it easy for you to browse our comprehensive catalogue and find the ideal Australian play for your next production.

 

Searching

Our search tools make it easy to select the right play for your needs by allowing you to identify plays by title, writer, category, subject, length, cast size or target audience. We also have a dedicated monologue search feature that will help you identify plays that contain the perfect piece for your next audition or assessment.
