      Fifty short works commissioned by PlayWriting Australia as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and live-streamed simultaneously by more than thirty performing arts organisations across Australia on 2-5 July 2020. Each play was a monologue.

      From the organisation:

      At a time when a pandemic has forced reflection and change, 50 playwrights have responded to questions that get to the heart of where our nation is and where it might go.

      These stories are postcards addressed to Dear Australia.

      Playwriting Australia (PWA) invited 25 theatre organisations from across Australia to each nominate two playwrights. PWA then commissioned these 50 playwrights to each write a short monologue, which were then filmed by 50 extraordinary actors, many in their own homes.

      Grouped over three nights, these 50 postcards are a unique account of these times and a striking moment of national celebration and reflection.
