Monash CTP helping to showcase new writing

Monash CTP would like to congratulate Lonely Company for their outstanding festival of new writing, Beta Festival: Theatre in Various States of Undress, which was held at Siteworks in Brunswick recently, concluding February 19th.

Proudly, the festival was produced with funding support from Monash Centre for Theatre and Performance and the Monash Academy of Performing Arts as part of the University’s continued commitment to new Australian writing and we were so proud to be involved with this Fest and the amazing calibre of work showcased!

The sold out festival featured work from 18 playwrights including Tom Holloway, Emma Hall, Zoey Dawson, Rachel Perks and our very own Monash graduates Chris Bryant, Tom Middleditch, Mark Wilson and Fleur Kilpatrick.

Beta Fest was a vibrant celebration of new writing and the act of creation, as the works featured were unfinished and raw.

We look forward to seeing how these works continue to develop in the future and hope to see them on stages around the country in the coming years.

Congratulations to all playwrights on their amazing work and to Lonely Company for the initiative – looking forward to the next Beta Fest already!
