Biography
  • The Australian National Playwrights Conference was established in 1972 as the peak body in play development for Australian theatre. The Conference aimed to promote and develop script writing by Australian writers, to produce such plays by professional companies, to offer critical and practical theatrical assistance to playwrights and rehearsed readings of selected play scripts. Following the first conference in 1973, when Alan Seymour was a special guest, conferences were held annually. They brought together playwrights, actors, dramaturges, directors, administrators and theatre critics. The 33rd, and final conference, was held in Perth in 2006. The Conference ceased operating on 30 November, 2006.
