Stella Kent


Plays by Launceston writer Stella Kent have been produced by the Australian Script Centre, ABC Radio National and FM Classic, The Tasmanian Theatre Company (Poxed), Theatre North (Our Path) and CentreStage (including Because, Boz & Co., Conviction and Mr Bligh’s Third Mutiny), as well as being selected for two Ten Days on the Island Festivals. Both Boz and Conviction were short-listed for Sydney’s Griffin Award. Our Path, presented in Launceston’s Gorge, was short-listed for an AWGIE, and A Tale of One City won an AWGIE for Radio Drama.

For many years Dr Kent taught in the School of Performing Arts at the University of Tasmania where she was later an Honorary Research Assistant, and has also been Playwright in Residence at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery.

Her latest play, Sovereign, was selected for development by London’s cutting-edge Old Red Lion Theatre from the 1,000 scripts they receive each year and was recently shortlisted for the Summer Playreading Festival by The Road Theatre Company in North Hollywood, California.
