Researcher biography

I am a playwright-academic whose research interests lie in contemporary Australian playwriting, Gothic Studies, Australian theatre historiography, and cli-fi plays. My playwriting practice is currently focused on a series of plays looking at climate change denialism and catastrophic climate change as speculative fiction in the absurdist mode. My scholarly research interests presently lie in contemporary Australian playwriting, where I am collaborating with my colleague Dr Chris Hay on a series of articles and a co-authored Routledge book looking at C21st writing for the Australian stage.
