Theatrical Tendencies

When

Each year the country’s peak academic body for Australian writing – Association for the Study of Australian Literature – comes together to unpick and discuss the ideas and climate of our literary world. This year, two of their sessions are open to the public through the Wheeler Centre.

Between the academy and the marketplace, how well do we look after our playwrights, and what is the health of our theatre community? Raimondo Cortese, Hannie Rayson, Lally Katz and Jenny Kemp discuss the dramas of drama with Dr Denise Varney.
