Australian Plays hosts the world’s largest online showcase of the best Australian playwriting.

An in-depth State Theatre Company South Australia collection has been created that gathers together education resources related to our productions. The plays for which these resources were created span many years and include Australian premieres, many of which have been staged only once in Australia. This collection includes written, video and audio resources to ensure students with different learning styles can find a way to engage in both the classroom and the digital space.
