Why do we see so few plays by Australian women?

Playwrights Patricia Cornelius and Van Badham, Artistic Directors Marion Potts and Ralph Myers and moderator Chris Mead discuss contemporary Australian theatre’s relationship to gender, diversity and the canon.

What broader representational responsibilities does the theatre have, and how can female playwrights be released from perceptions of tokenism and kid glove criticism?
