It aims to encourage writing for the stage by Northern Rivers writers and has been presented eight times previously, the last three by Drill Hall Theatre Company.

This year, from over 30 entries, the independent panel chose nine plays hoping to create a well-balanced program reflecting a variety of current interests and theatre styles.
