Raw Treats


Enquiries regarding Raw Treats

can be made to artistic director Paul Gilchrist on

At subtlenuance, we passionately believe in new work. 

Since our inception in 2008, we've produced 30 original plays.

  And that passion is why we're returning to our Raw Treats program.


Raw Treats is a series of ongoing play readings.

If you’re a Sydney-based playwright, we’d love to hear from you!

What we’ll provide:

  • A venue for a private reading of your play.

  • A quality cast of actors.

  • An opportunity for you to hear your script read and to ask questions about how it’s received.


What you’ll provide:

A terrific draft script (over 45 minutes in duration) about any topic.

Things to note:

We're not offering to present a public showcase of your work,

but a private reading that hopefully will help you further develop your script. 

We're not seeking plays to produce.

You will neither be charged a fee nor receive a payment.

Your script remains your intellectual property.

The keywords for Raw Treats are relaxed and friendly.

We’ll choose a date for the reading that suits you.

And we'd like to thank Darlo Drama for providing us with a wonderful venue for Raw Treats.

There will be another call out in the second half of 2024
