Former reviewer for Theatrepeople, Henry Shaw, is presenting a reading of his major work “I am all out of F’s to give” as part of his MFA at NIDA alongside nine other new¬†Australian works. Next week starting on the 19th, there will be two readings live-streamed at 5.10 and 6.10 each night written by NIDA MFA writers. This is a free event, but bookings are required for the link to the livestreams.

NIDA is proud to present 40-minute excerpts of the full-length works developed by the MFA (Writing for Performance) students as the core part of their work with us through 2020.

You will see stage plays, screenplays, television scripts and audio plays in a wide variety of genres, from horror to drama to comedy. The works touch on many of the themes of contemporary life, from global warming to sexual anxiety, with all this reflecting the passions and concerns of the individual writers.
