Australia has a dynamic collection of stories and cultures - yet how many make it to the nation's stages?

Has the industry failed playwrights and audiences?

How have other countries responded to the challenge of reflecting diversity?

Dramaturg and director Chris Mead examines the way the UK handles the issue, reviews the national Australian scene, asks some tough questions about institutional racism, colonial, national and community theatre

It also proposes some exciting new ways to develop a more dynamic theatre culture
