Auckland Theatre Company’s NEXT STAGE 2016  

Plays on the journey to full production. THE NEXT STAGE is Auckland Theatre Company’s annual festival of new scripts in development and a vital part of our planning for future seasons. 

“Auckland Theatre Company is committed to developing New Zealand playwrighting through The Testing Ground (our monthly workshop programme ); commissions; the ATC Patrons Playwrights Award; and, The Next Stage Festival of New Work. It’s a commitment ATC will continue when it move into the new 650 seat ASB Waterfront Theatre in 2016.

“But big stages need big ideas. So, The Next Stage Festival of New Work 2015 is an opportunity to work with ATC to develop bold and theatrical story-telling ideas that speak to us about life in our city and what it means to be a New Zealander.” – Colin McColl Artistic Director.

Auckland Theatre Company’s Literary Unit is calling for submissions of full length plays, either original works or adaptations, for its annual national festival of new work.

Deadline for Submissions: 18 July 2016 [More
