Marita Wilcox

Five of my full-length plays have been professionally performed at La Mama, The Last Laugh - Behind The Play, Playbox Theatre - Ruthed - published by Southbank Theatre Company and Mrs X (then adapted into a feature film), Chapel off Chapel - Mary Devine and in various site-specific venues, including hotels, and Leagues Clubs.

Behind The Play and Mrs X have also toured Victoria, NSW and Queensland.

Additionally, my work has also had readings and performances at the Women’s International Playwrights Conference in Greece 2000 and South Africa 2015 and my play-text Bloodlion was chosen for playwriting creative developments at Playbox Theatre Company and Queensland Theatre Company.

My writing career branched out to also include television and film with Grundy Television and with the Eve Ash’s video production company Seven Dimensions. This led me to secure my own clients writing video scripts and manuals on customer service in Australia and South East Asia.

Currently working on a new play with dramaturgical assistance - La Societa Italiana.
