AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Adaptations dominate Australian theatre. Is this a sign of the bankruptcy of original ideas or does it herald a confident fresh approach to great works of drama?'


  • Epigraph: Write your own plays and stop effing around with everybody else's. It's lazy. It's easy. It's conservative. And it ignores the vibrancy of the contemporary voices that surround you. -Playwright and screenwriter Andrew Bovell on the rise of adapted plays.

    It's not Ibsen's script, it's my script. -Writer-director Simon on his adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's The Wild Duck.
