Incubator seeks to identify, support and develop emerging Queensland playwrights by creating a unified and nurturing environment in which to complete the first draft of a new play.
Across nine months of 2017, award-winning playwright Richard Jordan will lead participants through a range of activities designed to cultivate their own unique voice – and inspire a play they never thought they would write. Each workshop will revolve around a different “access point” to beginning a new work such as: Memory, Emotion, and Landscape, while various aspects of craft will be explored. At the end of the workshop series, each participant will hand in the first draft of a full-length play, and receive one-on-one feedback. At least one Incubator play is guaranteed entry into the 2018 Alpha Processing program.
Incubator is open to South-East Queensland playwrights eighteen years and over, in the first three years of their practice, who have written at least one play (short or long form). The program will run fortnightly on Wednesday evenings, from 6:30pm – 9:00pm, at Playlab’s Rehearsal Room. An introductory session will take place one week before the first workshop.
