Playmarket 40

From humble beginnings in a tiny nook opposite Downstage Theatre, Playmarket has advanced to become a key player in New Zealand’s national theatre landscape.

Playmarket 40 celebrates the first forty years of achievement, from the development of the organisation itself to the evolution of local playwriting. With articles and introductions by playwrights Hone Kouka, Kate Morris and Renee Liang, Playmarket Directors Nonnita Rees, Mark Amery and Murray Lynch, and commentators Laurie Atkinson, David O'Donnell, John Huria and Alister McDonald, this is an essential volume for researchers, theatre students and theatregoers alike.
