Prize 2019

Theatre for all

It was free in ancient Athens and it’s FREE in Sydney. After 2500 years, a world first – you, the audience, voting for the winner in a play competition. No panel, no artistic director, just three finalists, three brilliant new Australian first acts, and you, casting your vote for the one you most want to see worked up into a full play. The winning playwright gets $15,000 and two return tickets to Athens.

Theatre reflects our Australian identity. Come and shape it yourself.
