Full-time ELEVATE: Script Call Out - One-Act Plays

at Theatre 451 (Anywhere)

THEATRE 451 presents ELEVATE

ELEVATE your work in 2016
A new initiative for Australian playwrights
Submissions open 4 January 2016 and close 25 March 2016

ELEVATE is our new works initiative for 2016. Submissions are invited by writers aged 18 and over of one –act plays with a duration between 45 – 60 minutes. There are two categories: our young adult submission round for writers 18 – 25 (please note that writers must be 18 by 27 May 2016) and our open submission round for writers 26+.

From these submissions, 10 plays will be selected by an independent panel for rehearsed readings enabling you to hear your work to be read by actors. At the end of each reading there will be a Q&A with writer (where available), cast and director with the audience. There will be basic technical lighting and audio support at each reading.

From these readings two plays will be selected by both the audience and an industry professional for further development through a facilitated workshop process and included in our 2017 season. The final two selected plays will be fully produced and receive a short season each. This part of the project has received funding support from the Regional Arts Fund.

We are looking for works that are bold. We want you to show us your voice as a writer and what you want to say. All we’re asking is that you excite us – make us laugh, make us cry, but most of all…make us think.


There is no charge to submit.

There is no requirement to print, bind and post your submission to us. We have a kind sponsor who will print all submissions.

Please read the guidelines carefully and take your time in completing the submission form. The information you provide when you submit your script is equally important to us. We are looking for writers who would like to work collaboratively and continue to develop their play.

If you would like submission guidelines and form please email us at or via

Guidelines and forms will be available on our website from 4 January 2016.
