The National Play Festival brings theatre-makers, producers and audiences together in an annual celebration of Australian playwriting and theatre. Presenting a curated season of the most exciting new Australian plays from around the country, as well as special presentations, discussions and industry symposia; the Festival honours the role of new writing as a critical, living part of our story-telling culture.

The National Play Festival is presented by PlayWriting Australia, the national peak body for writing for the stage with a mission to see more, high quality Australian plays on stages here and overseas. To find out more about PlayWriting Australia visit their website.
