Glace Viede

Glace Viede is an Australian writer and performer. They won the prestigious 2008 Griffin Award for their debut play Whore, which premiered at Belvoir St Theatre in 2009 and was closely followed by a New York production. In 2010 Glace was awarded the Queensland Premiere’s Literary Award for Whore. In 2008 they were an Affiliate Playwright with Griffin Theatre Company working on two commissions, Autumn and Poised, and were also commissioned to write a new play for Bell Shakespeare Company, Gull. Glace’s play, A Hoax, was performed at the National Play Festival as part of “Kicking Down the Doors” and also won the 2011 Griffin Award. It was then performed as part of the 2012 season for both La Boite Theatre, Queensland and Griffin Theatre, New South Wales. For their play, Oranges & Lemons, Glace received a ‘Highly Commended’ from the judges for the 2012 Max Afford Playwrights Award and was shortlisted for the Patrick White Playwrights Award. Glace’s latest play, Nobody’s Girl, premiered at New Jersey Repertory Company in the United States in August 2015.

Glace has been shortlisted for numerous awards and won the Shaw Prize for essays. They also created the satiric “Aspiring Personality” character Glace Chase, a self-described “total bottom”, who has played to critical acclaim throughout Australia including seasons at Belvoir St Downstairs Theatre, Melbourne Comedy Festival, Mardi Gras Festival, The Butterfly Club, and Feast Festival. Glace Chase traverses stand up comedy, cabaret, printed opinion pieces and dubious investigational reportage with savage wit and vivacious humour. They received a ‘Highly Commended’ mention at the SPAA Fringe Pitching competition in 2010 and was shortlisted for Movie Extra Network’s WebFest for their concept Glace Chase vs. New York. Glace can currently be found leading unsuspecting tourists on fun, hilarious and strangely informative tours of NYC with their own tour guide business, Glace Chase’s DREAM QUEEN TOURS, or on their YouTube infotainment show, Glace, on the Total Bottom Network (TBN).

Glace holds a B.A. from Monash University and has completed a Graduate Diploma in Screenwriting at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS).
