A celebration of the art of playmaking.

PlayFull is a series of new, extant, emerging, and boundary pushing play-readings, workshops and performed showings presented over four months in the Brown's Mart Theatre. The program is a homage to the craft of the Writer, Actor and Director, performing a selection of stripped back plays by both NT artists and celebrated national and international playwrights, accompanied by a talks and workshops program for you to really sink your teeth into until you’re completely play-full.

Workshop registrations will be open in April and June.
