About the Collection

Australian Plays, a predecessor organisation of APT, was a firmly national organisation with a long and rich history in Tasmania stretching back to the 1970s. APT maintains an office in Hobart.

Of the Island is our collection of Tasmanian playwriting. It doesn’t attempt to be a full record, but we hope that over time it will grow to include not only new works from playwrights born, raised or residing in Tasmania, but also rediscovered older works and plays that deal with Tasmanian history and concerns.

Please visit this wonderful snapshot of the playwriting of Tasmania.


All titles listed on Australian Plays, including those featured in BlakStage, are either published by one of our partners,
such as Currency or Playlab, or have been accepted into the Australian Script Centre’s catalogue.
We welcome the submission of unsolicited scripts to BlakStage. Information on the eligibility, submission
and assessment of scripts can be found here.


We acknowledge that we live and create on unceded lands. We pay our respects to the First Peoples of Australia, and to their elders past, present and future.
