There’s nothing like a new Australian play to capture the current voice of our country. A story can find its way to our stage through many paths, but perhaps one of the most direct and exciting ways is through the Queensland Premier’s Drama Award. Celebrating 20 years in 2021, this Award discovers, develops and produces outstanding Australian plays. It’s the only playwriting prize in the country that guarantees a premiere season of the work. Joining Lee Lewis in the studio today are previous winners Daniel Evans and Steve Pirie to discuss their experiences with the Queensland Premier’s Drama Award, and their suggestions for playwrights considering entering their scripts this year.
