EOIs open for playwriting & performance program - COME TO WHERE I AM - AUSTRALIA

Come to Where I Am – Australia will engage seven regional and rural playwrights from around the country to create a new 10-minute story that is a snapshot of what it is like to live in their part of Australia right now. These stories will then be turned into short video postcards featuring readings by the playwrights themselves. The readings and works will be showcased on a new digital channel launching on the Critical Stages Touring website in mid-2020.

Given an extraordinary year of bushfires and the Covid-19 pandemic, these works will be a poignant and timely artistic record of an incredible time, as well as a digital map of regional Australia for audiences around the world. Come To Where I Am – Australia will invite audiences to travel, virtually, at a time when visiting these communities is impossible.

Plays will be selected via an EOI process, with submissions open until midnight, Monday 25th May.
