One-act plays

May contain Coarse Language and Adult Themes

Since 1978, Noosa Arts Theatre has run the National One-Act Playwriting Competition.  With an $8,000 cash prize pool, it attracts entries from playwrights not only from Australia but across the world.  Scripts are judged anonymously by a panel of readers who are experienced in directing, acting and producing plays and a shortlist is then judged by a panel of three professional industry experts.  The three finalists are selected on the quality of the writing, not on subject matter, and the winning order is decided before the plays are presented in this Festival.  Many emerging playwrights have been discovered through this process.

During the Festival, the audience is asked at each performance to vote for the ‘Nancy Cato Audience Choice Award’.  Other awards include Best Director and Best Actor.  Presentation of the awards takes place after the final performance.  

The play’s the thing and without plays there is no theatre.  Noosa Arts Theatre is proud to offer this opportunity to aspiring and established playwrights.
