I am an Australian playwright who has just joined the site. I am currently updating my http://www.doollee.com page under Peter Shelley, if you are curious about my stuff.
I am on the lookout for opportunities to get my work on stage, locally or internationallty. Have been allowed to direct 4 of my own plays, but am presently fighting the fight against those that think writers should not direct. Am I a director? Well, if I have directed 4 times, then I say yes. Anyway, am considering directing someone else's play at the moment, and waiting on an application for a co-production next year of 2 x 1 act plays.
If you are on the lookout for opportunities, visit the Opportunities for Playwrights section on the home page. You might have fun doing our Submission Spree where we are required to send out at least one play per day for thirty days. The next spree begins February 14th.
For your short work you can post it and invite critiques. There are no vicious critiques here. That is not the nature of this forum nor will it ever be.
Jump right in and above all, have fun! Paddy and I moderate and Paul created and owns this fabulous forum.
