playwriting australia| nATIONAL Play Festival: On whiteness

They say that Australia is the most successful multicultural nation on the planet. In a country where a third of us are non-Anglo Celtic, it’s understandable (and necessary) that many of our debates about Australian theatre focus on diversity. But why don’t we ever talk about whiteness? Why does pointing it out make us so uncomfortable? Are anxieties about the whiteness of our stages actually a problem, or just PC nonsense? This panel examines what we mean when we talk about whiteness and what we can – and should – do about it.
