One-Act Play competition


It's a triple treat at Noosa Arts Theatre as they stage the 44th annual One-Act Play competition with the three finalist plays all on the one program.

The Truth About Camping, written by Gavin Critchley, NSW, will remind you of all the joys of roughing it in the great outdoors.

Embers, written by Natalie Burns, Vic, is an emotional roller-coaster about the all-consuming reality of bushfires and the unquenchable human spirit.

Carol’s Christmas, by Richard Harris, NZ, is a yuletide romp about about all the things you love about Christmas - but what happens when there is a an even bigger issue at hand?

Since 1978 Noosa Arts Theatre has been running the National One-Act Playwriting Competition. With the Nimmo Prize for best play worth $5000, it attracts entries from playwrights from all over Australia and other countries. Scripts are judged anonymously by a professional panel of three industry experts.
