StorytellersFestival_Facebookbanner (1).jpg

Those words you wrote that have never been heard? We want them.

Storytellers Festival @ KXT is a 2-week pop-up celebration of playwrights and words.

It’s an opportunity to showcase unproduced plays, share writing that has never been heard, and come together as a playwriting community. The Festival is curated by playwright Joanna Erskine, in association with Danny Ball and bAKEHOUSE Theatre.

Who’s eligible? Playwrights at any stages of their writing careers.

What are we after? There are two categories for submissions:

Spotlight: Full-length, unproduced plays at, or close to, final draft stage. A small number of Spotlight plays will be selected for staged readings during the festival. It is intended that each Spotlight play will have two opportunities to be read during the Festival.

House Lights: Small pieces that you would like to share. It could be a scene, a short play, a song, a monologue, something that got cut from another work and has yet to find a home. We’ll curate a few House Lights evenings using work submitted. Each House Lights program will have two showings during the Festival.

We are looking to program: 

A diverse mix of playwrights

A diverse range of writing styles and content

Work that is ready, or almost ready for, production  

How will it work? We’re moving quickly. It will be a short submissions period and selections will be made as soon as possible. Once selected, there are two ways of putting your work on: 

Bring your own team If you already have actors and/or a director in place for your piece, or can organise actors and a director, then let us know who your team is. Writers may also choose to direct, or perform their own work (if a solo piece). 

We connect you We aim to have a pool of actors who are keen to read during the Festival. We will pair you up and put you in touch with them.

Please note, it is the writer’s responsibility to organise their own reading and rehearsal.

Storytellers Festival is not about polished performances. It’s about hearing the words. Actors will have scripts in hand. There will be no set, a basic lighting state, and chairs for the actors. If you want to use props, bring them along but keep them simple. This is about the script, not the production. 

What’s in it for writers? Storytellers Festival is a showcase of new work. Ticket prices will be kept low to encourage repeat audience attendance throughout the Festival. Box office will cover costs (minimal) and a remuneration for participating writers, in both Spotlight and House Lights categories. Writers will be notified of remuneration arrangement as soon as it is finalised, and the Festival will be transparent in all communication.

The Festival provides an opportunity to share work and invite people to hear your work, to further generate audience interest in new Australian writing, create new networking opportunities for writers, and encourage industry to hear work that is ready for production. 

How do I submit? Submit your application via the link below. Its super simple, super quick 

Submissions must be received by

5.00 pm Thursday 26 July 2018.

We first said hi to James Raggatt at the start of 2016. KXT had been up and running for only a few weeks and, not long out of NIDA, James brought us a script that we thought was super interesting. We had an empty week at KXT and he got together a bunch of mates and headed into development to take a look at it all. On the back of that week James made a few changes, rewrote a bunch of stuff, and came up with the first draft of what would become YOUTH + DESTINATION. In 2017 some more time came available at KXT and so he took another look at it all.


Since that first meeting, James has kept busy. He was the lead in Spring Awakenings at ATYP in 2016. Then one of the leads in the beautiful BLINK at KXT presented by Stories Like These early in 2017. He was a rehearsal observer on The Drover at Belvoir, and assistant director on MacBeth for STCSA.

The show is now about to go into full production. Some of the original collaborators in development are a part of the cast. James has launched his new company MANIFESTO Theatre Co, the media release is out, programs are at the printers, the wine is ordered for opening night. This week they bump in, (and just quietly what they’re doing with the stage in at KXT is a little bit exciting / surprising…!)

STEP UP provides support and opportunity to new work, new artists, and new companies. YOUTH + DESTINATION is a perfect little example of how this process can work.


2018:     Dresden by Justin Fleming; YOUTH + DESTINATION by James Raggatt; Storylines by the company; Visiting Hours by John Harrison, Con Costi and Michael Costi; Two Hearts by Laura Lethlean; The Hysteric by Gretal Vella. In development StoryLines by the company; Human Activity by Katie Pollock; bAKEHOUSE / CPAC Writers Residency with Winnie Dunn

2017:     The Laden Table by Yvonne Perszuk, Nur Alam and company; Jatinga by Purva Naresh; Between the Streetlight and the Moon by Melita Rowston; Before Lysistrata by Ellena Costa; Puntila/Matti by Tobias Manderson-Galvin; Night Slows Down by Philip Rouse; A Christmas Carol by Melissa Lee Speyer and company. In development Youth + Destination by James Raggatt; Night Slows Down by Philip Rouse

2016:     Good With Maps by Noelle Janackzewska; Tiny Remarkable Bramble by Jessica Tuckwell; The Angelica Complex by Sunny Grace with Priscilla Jackman; Tanscience by Clare Hennessey; Atlantis by Paul Gilchrist; Shut Up & Drive by Paul Gilchrist. In development: The Laden Table by Yvonne Perszuk, Nur Alam and company; Jatinga by Purva Naresh; Youth + Destination by James Raggatt; Noli Mi Tangere by Peter Fleming; #LADS by Lots5   

bAKEHOUSE presents


In 2016 we saw Jess Thom’s performance of Backstage in Biscuit Land, playing at Malthouse as part of the Melbourne Festival. It was a wild ride: a challenge to what we think theatre should be, and most particularly how audiences behave in our theatres. We loved it! It was Jess’ work that has played an important role in the rising number of venues in the UK that have established RELAXED PERFORMANCES as a regular part of their seasons. It’s also now become a routine part of many seasons at US theatres.

jess thom.jpg

“A relaxed performance is a true judgement-free zone… everyone is welcome and released from the traditional expectations about sitting still and staying silent”

At KXT we believe that everyone benefits from a rich cultural life, that we ALL deserve to have access to the arts. KXT has disabled access available for all performances. Earlier in the year we were thrilled when the team at Unofficial Kerith Fanclub staged an Auslan Interpreted performance of Being Dead (Don Quixote). As a venue regularly hosting trans and queer work, we’ve worked with KX hotel management to provide all-genders bathroom facilities and appropriate signage, to make sure our audience members and artists feel safe and welcome. And just quietly, we’d love to see mums and bubs back in the foyer.

Plus we’re committed to affordability: through our Open the Door program, established in 2014, we’ve been working with not for profits to make theatre available to those whose personal circumstances mean they are unable to pay market price for their seats. Our partnership with Playwave is all about providing discount tickets for 15 – 19 year olds, and our Thursday night $20 for 20s is a regular cheap ticket.     

We can all argue the value of theatre. Perhaps it’s the opiate of the masses, a lovely relief from the pressures of an increasingly stressful life, a vehicle for important storytelling and grand ideas or simply a record of the world we live in and the world we want. But there is no question that theatre is alive and well in the heart of the city.

RELAXED PERFORMANCES are held the Wednesday following on from Opening. Everyone welcome! Get in touch and let us know what you need

The venues in the above articles are delivering on a grand scale. KXT is a small unfunded and unstaffed venue, there’s only a couple of us running things, and there are limits to what we can do. But we will continue to work to keep the theatre fully accessible. Drop us a line and tell us what you need. We'll do our best to make sure you can come along to one of the city's most exciting indie theatres



Who’s hanging out at KXT?

This week Eve Beck & Georgina Adamson brought in their tasty little morsel of madness INJEST, The Last Supper, hand in hand with Hannah Goodwin directing Pippa Ellam’s THE CAROUSEL, an honest and uncensored look at sisters. And earlier in the week we trialed an exciting new concept: UPSTART was put together and hosted by Jessica Adie.


Earlier this month Claudia Barrie directed DNA for new company Last One Standing Theatre, supported by Alyssa Stevenson on her first producing gig. DNA was recast gender neutral, with 6 women in a cast of 11, and the fab Jess-Belle Keogh was a stand out as Jill, originally written as John. Rebecca Blake took a first look at Rotterdam, working with Phoebe Lane, Ella Prince and Bobbie-Jean Henning, alongside Travis Jeffery. Up next is the Brevity Theatre production of A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing, with an all women team of Emma Diaz, Veronique Bennett, Clemmie Williams, and Isabel Hudson led by director Erin Taylor working with the sublime Ella Prince.

Later this year: Kim Hardwick; Claudia Barrie; Suzanne Millar; Lucy Clements, Jess Arthur, Kristine Landon-Smith and Carissa Licciardello are all heading into the director’s chair. Writers: Annie Ryan; Clare Barron; Martyna Majok; Anna Jordan; Laura Lethlean and Gretal Vella.

since launching KXT has exceeded gender equity: in 2017 we hosted 8 female directors (7 male directors); 14 female writers (5 male writers). In 2016, our first full year of operation: 17 producers who happened to be women; 11 directors who happened to be women; 10 writers who happened to be women.

We wrapped up our first year hosting INVISIBLE CIRCUS, a month long festival celebrating the work of women, co-curated by Siren Theatre and bAKEHOUSE Theatre Co, with plays written, directed, developed and performed by women.

Sometimes you’ve just got to get the job done.

BEING DEAD (DON QUIXOTE) by Kerith Manderson-Galvin


6 - 10 MARCH

Written & performed by  KERITH MANDERSON-GALVIN


"a glorious mess with a serious purpose" Daily Review

A dangerous quest of literary theft, build-your-own identity and post-anarchy. Being Dead (Don Quixote) steals from Cervantes, Barbie™ and instant porn.  Don Quixote is the idol you deserve.


Kerith Manderson-Galvin’s sensational and ever evolving signature work has alienated and captivated audiences and now debuts in Sydney at KXT. Infamous Queer Femme Kerith Manderson-Galvin (AKA Unofficial Kerith Fan Club) rips off the original rip-off artist Kathy Acker et al. in this ongoing project purposefully rewritten to Manderson-Galvin’s own shifting identity. 

From the chaotic and critically acclaimed company that brought Sydney ‘Puntila/Matti’, ‘The Eternity of the World’, and ‘Unsex Me’ - MKA Theatre of New Writing.

Additional Text Kathy Acker / Miguel de Cervantes / Barbie Commercials
Composer/Musician Jules Pascoe
Lighting Jason Crick
