APT is seeking a highly motivated and visionary candidate to become the first Executive Producer/CEO of a new national playwriting development and publication organisation. This is an opportunity to help shape an important new force in Australian theatre. 

Australian Plays Transform (APT) is the result of a merger between Playwriting Australia (the national body for the development of Australian playwriting) and Australian Plays (digital publisher, and the leading online catalogue of Australian plays). The creation of this consolidated entity was the key recommendation of the independent REĂ Review into play development in Australia.


Applicants are advised to carefully read the Executive Producer Application Pack, which can be downloaded from the websites of both Australian Plays and Playwriting Australia. Recent updates on the progress towards APT can also be found on those websites. As background, we also encourage you to read the REĂ Review.

To apply, submit a cover letter, current CV and no more than 4 pages expressing your reasons for applying for the role, and the vision, skills and experience that you would bring to this new organisation. Please send your application as one single PDF document.

If you need the application pack provided in another format, please get in touch.

Applications are due by 5pm AEDT on Monday 22 February, emailed to
