Brand Spanking New:A Celebration of New Australian Writing

BSN_the kiss
Returning to New Theatre for its second year, Brand Spanking New celebrates Australian playwriting by showcasing the work of both emerging and established writers in a two week fully curated season.

Monologues, short plays and excerpts from longer plays, Brand Spanking New is a selected snapshot of the best of contemporary writing – poignant, tender, brave, bold and unapologetically funny.

Divisions occur because there is very little anyone can absolutely say is true and right in the theatre… indeed perhaps life. It comes down to taste, attention, experience and above all else articulation of the individual’s response to what they have seen. Read more

This site is about my long, deep, bright-eyed, ever-hopeful, sometimes difficult, always invigorating, rambunctious, rebellious, dynamic and very personal relationship with Australian Arts and Culture...
