When Summer turns to Autumn turn to the SHE WRITES COLLECTIVE to provide a sneaky peak inside their new work in a series of play readings with professional actors and directors. Climb inside each writer’s mind when they discuss intimately the radical act of playwriting, how they go about it, why they do it, and the unique genesis for each of their works in the series of dialogues to accompany the readings. The Collective will take over Theatre Works’ new space the Explosives Factory for 2 days of heart-wrenching, captivating, dangerous, political and poetic moments of theatre.

See excerpts of these resident writer’s new plays before they hit Australian stages as fully formed beasts.
