Can you believe it? Almost a year ago Performance 4a and Playwriting Australia launched the LOTUS Asian Australian Playwriting Project, an exciting initiative to nurture a new generation of Asian Australian writers for the stage. Since then, more than 70 participants have attended introductory workshops in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, and a third of them have continued to the intermediate stage. They've begun writing their own plays, mentored by professional playwrights.
In coming months, you'll have a chance to hear some of these brand new writings from our budding Lotus playwrights, performed by professional casts.
JUST ANNOUNCED: Be the first to hear from our budding Brisbane playwrights Michelle Law, Shari Indriani, Merlynn Tong and Silvan Rus.
