Future Proof

A fantastic opportunity for Tasmanian writers aged 18-25

Blue Cow is partnering with Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) and Australian Plays to offer a writing studio for young, emerging Tasmanian playwrights aged 18-25.

12 young Tasmanian writers will come together with senior artists – nationally recognised mentors, playwrights and dramaturges – for a writing intensive. Over five days each young writer will be supported to develop a 7-10 minute play, written specifically for young actors. The new works developed in “Future Proof the Page” will be melded into a single show which Blue Cow Theatre will produce in 2020 as “Future Proof the Stage”.


Orientation Thursday 3 October / Workshops 4 - 7 October

Support Future Proof

We are seeking 12 patrons to donate $600 each to support our 12 emerging writers. Your patronage will support one young writer to attend our 5-day residential writing program. The results of your patronage will be tangible: the residency will result in a production of new stage work in early 2020, to which you will be invited as a generous and far-sighted supporter of the program. And of course your donation is tax- deductible.

If you would like to support the Future Proof writers, visit our website or email Robert or Lucinda at hello@
