For over a decade, our annual series of Cybec Electric play readings has brought the most exciting, fresh and urgent new writing to audiences. With scripts in hand, actors present works-in-progress with the assistance of directors and dramaturgs. This provides a crucial step in the creation of new work – bringing them to life in front of an audience.

Theatre isn’t made in isolation, and this program is an opportunity for writers to come together with peers and a professional team to nurture and test new ideas.

The next Cybec Electric will take place in October 2024. Further information regarding applications opening will be made available from May 2024. Follow us at @melbtheatreco to keep up to date.

For further information regarding the program, please contact New Work Associate, Zoey Dawson or Programs Producer, Karin Farrell
