AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Between 1943 and 1960, Australian playwright Oriel Gray had more than fourteen theatre scripts produced in almost every capital city of Australia. She was arguably the first playwright-in-residence in Australia's history and one of only a few Australian playwrights to make her living from her work. She wrote numerous radio plays for 2KY in the 1940s and many more for the then Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC) in the 1950s. She was well respected and well reviewed. She won many playwriting awards, including the Wagga Wagga play competition prize in 1946 for My Life Is My Affair, the J.C. Williamson Guild competition prize in 1960 for Burst of Summer and the 1955 Playwrights Advisory Board's (PAB) prize for the best Australian play with her script The 'Torrents'.'
