Raw Treats

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 performed and to ask questions about how it’s received.


What you’ll provide:

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

(Actually, it doesn't have to be terrific - yet; it can just be a draft.) 

We prefer there to be no creatives attached to your project - except, of course, you!


The keywords for Raw Treats are relaxed and friendly, and our choice of venue will reflect that.

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


Submissions for the current round have closed.

(but stay tuned for another callout later in the year.)
