Elizabeth Bennett has had six plays broadcast by ABC Radio National and ABC Classic FM: ‘Pilgrim’s Portrait’, ‘In the Public Domain’, ‘Aunt Branwell’s Teapot’, ‘Boundaries’, ‘I’m Home’ and ‘Theresa’s Garden’. Her short story, ‘This Wild Life’, was broadcast on BBC radio. Her monologue, ‘Homeless’, was broadcast on ABC TV’s Coast to Coast.
Elizabeth’s short theatre piece, ‘Zone’, was commissioned by the Australian Script Centre in 2004, and dramaturged by Playworks. ‘Zone’ was performed as a rehearsed reading in Hobart and Launceston, and in Cairns as part of the JUTE Playwright’s Conference. It was also performed as ‘Exclusion Zone’ in the Sydney “Short and Sweet Festival” in 2005 and was published by Playworks as part of their online magazine “Slice”.
Elizabeth was Playwright in Residence at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in 2006. Her play ‘Spiderwoman: a dozen lairs for Louise Bourgeois’, written during this residency, was performed as part of Playworks Invisible Boxes Festival in Sydney in May. Her series of four short monologues, ‘Un-Still Life’, was performed as part of Living Writers’ Week in the Museum in August. Her main project for the residency, a full-length play about women artists, ‘Dirty Women’, commissioned by the Australian Script Centre, was performed as a rehearsed reading in the Museum in November.
