Playlab’s Development program is designed to create a pathway for a play to move from inception to the stage. There is a clear trajectory from the emerging playwrights program Incubator, into Alpha Processing, then Beta Testing and into production. The pathway also provides multiple entry points for a work at any level of readiness, and from playwrights of any level of experience. The ultimate objective is to increase the quantity, quality and diversity of playwrights in Queensland, and consequently provide audiences with stories of diversity and excellence.
In 2017, Playlab is pleased to be able to offer a broader range of support to the industry in the form of Creative Services and Rehearsal Room hire. While the new Professional Development program, as an evolution of the old Education program, will provide new initiatives to help build skills.
If you’re interested in engaging with Playlab’s Development program or need creative and/or professional advice, please don’t hesitate to contact us and organise a meeting, we would love to hear about your work and aspirations for it.
