Our plays

Playscripts are the ASC's lifeblood. We strive to build a catalogue that represents the full spectrum of Australian playwriting in terms of genre, style, cultural diversity, intended audience and subject matter. More


Set up and managed by the Australian Script Centre in collaboration with other Australian theatrical publishers, australianplays.org is a one-stop shop for theatre professionals, community groups, researchers, educators, students and others with an interest in Australian performance writing. More


To simplify rights management for playwrights and theatre-makers, the ASC issues licences on application for the copying and, in many cases, also the production of plays in its catalogue. The ASC also enters into licensing agreements with various suppliers for the distribution and sale of Australian theatrical works through australianplays.org. More
