To celebrate 125 years since women won the right to vote in New Zealand, The Court Theatre is hosting a forum in collaboration with the Issac Theatre Royal to support female playwrights in New Zealand as part of New Zealand Theatre Month. 

In two discussion sessions, each an hour long, female theatrical practitioners will first discuss how works are staged (led by Pip Hall, Nancy Brunning and Melanie Luckman), followed by a discussion around content for mainstages (led by Philippa Campbell, Alison Quigan and Lorae Parry). 

In order to be eligible, participants need to identity as female and have had at least one play professionally produced. For more information and to enquire about attending, please email
