This is going to make me sound dreadfully naive, but here goes.
I'm an aspiring playwright doing a major in Creative Writing at Melbourne University, and last year I was commissioned to write a play for my old high school. It was a comedic mystery (or mysterious comedy), for a large cast, written with a school budget in mind. It was produced and performed with great success - we had a full house both nights, and the students really enjoyed it. The producer urged me to publish it, because she said it was better than most other school plays she had come across. Shortly after the performance, I made an entry on doolee.com, but, as I expected, nothing came out of this because it's a huge site and there are much better-established writers than me. (The school has since commissioned another play from me, this time with an offer of payment, so I must be doing something right.)

Review: Macbeth & Julius Caesar (Upstart Theatre Company)
5 November 2012
I loved the simplicity and minimalism of these productions. Without elaborate sets and costumes, the focus is essentially on the text, the plot, the characters, the performance. And what a great space to put on shows like this.
