Australian Script Centre

The Australian Script Centre (c. 1979) is a non-profit, national organisation that collects, promotes and distributes unpublished Australian play scripts. The centre has been based in Hobart since 1979 and is located on the first floor of the Salamanca Arts Centre, 77 Salamanca Place.


The ASC houses a unique collection of over 1500 unpublished Australian plays. The collection includes plays which have been archived and are available on a limited basis for academic research, and a collection of over 900 contemporary plays which are available to theatre makers, students and teachers of drama. A catalogue of plays readily available either in paper or electronic format can be found on our website at
