Lysicrates Prize 2019

Have your say in the future of Australian playwriting

Come along to the 5th annual Lysicrates Prize—a playwriting competition showcasing some of Australia’s most exciting playwriting talent.

Playwrights submit the first act of a new play for the prize, to be assessed by a team of professional readers.

The three finalists receive a week’s rehearsal with a professional director and cast, before a staged reading is held in front of a live audience at Sydney Opera House.

The audience will decide on the winning playwright who will receive a full commission of $15,000 to finish their play.

This year’s finalists are:

Jane Bodie ‘Tell Me You Love Me’
Julian Larnach ‘Leviathan’
Katy Warner ‘Appropriate’

Join us at Sydney Opera House and have your say in the future of Australian playwriting!

This event is free, however it is essential to register in order to secure your place.

The Lysicrates Prize is a philanthropic initiative presented by The Lysicrates Foundation and produced by Griffin Theatre Company. Presented in association with The Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney.



Sunday 24 March 2019 from 3.30pm to 5pm
