The National Play Festival unites audiences and artists in a celebration of Australian stories. This is a Play Festival of big ideas, of playwrights pushing at the boundaries of what theatre can be and do, imagining vast worlds and asking us to discover their sense of mischief, vitality and rigour. We ask huge questions about the role of art in society and the place of playwrights in our culture, and celebrate writers as our cultural beacons. Presented by Carriageworks in association with Playwriting Australia.
