For over a decade MTC’s annual Cybec Electric play reading series celebrates theatre in its essence: great stories, electric writing and brilliant acting all working to ignite the audience’s imagination. With scripts in hand, professional actors present new works-in-progress with the assistance of directors and dramaturgs.

Established to create opportunities for playwrights to increase their skills and experience, the stories developed through Cybec Electric reflect the here and now. The series is a rare opportunity for audiences to be part of the important development stage of new Australian plays. A number of the plays featured in Cybec Electric have gone on to receive full scale productions at MTC and theatre companies nationwide.

Applications for 2022 are now closed. Cybec Electric 2022 will take place 3  5 March.
