Together, we can make a difference.

Playlab Theatre turned 50 this year and it’s our biggest year yet, marking another major step in our continued evolution into Queensland’s new writing theatre.

By the end of 2022 alone, we will have staged 4 new Australian works, employed over 70 artists, developed 20 new playwrights through our programs — Incubator, Sparks, Transmission, Playwright-In-Residence — and released 26 new publications of work from around the country, including 14 new Queensland works.

Playlab Theatre is growing to meet the needs of our community of artists and audiences who are hungry for high-quality text based theatre. However, our resources are holding us back. We want to partner with you to support more artists and produce more works.

So, join us in creating more opportunities. Your donations will directly support the development of Queensland artists and their work.

All donations above AUD$2.00 are tax deductible.
