Currency accepts for consideration plays written by Australian authors that have had a professional production in Australia.
Please send them through, together with reviews, to [email protected]
In the case of established writers, we may consider plays for publication that have a professional production contracted for the near future. Please contact us at [email protected] to discuss.

Currency also has a large list of critical studies and manuals.
