ANTHROPOCENE PLAY COMPANY
The Anthropocene Play Company was established in 2016 by Bronwen Coleman, Clare Larman and Pia O'Meadhra. We are a company committed to creating feminist, culturally inclusive, socially engaged theatre that provokes debate and reflection around the pressing issues of our time.
We passionately address inequities in cultural and gender representation, and enthusiastically promote diversity. As a company within Melbourne, we acknowledge we are creating on the Land of the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri peoples and champion representation of all First Nation peoples.
APC plays have appeared in venues such as the 2019 Melbourne Fringe with a new production of Tennessee Williams’ Something Unspoken, called “Terrific…a highlight of this year’s Melbourne Fringe” by Theatrepeople.com. In 2018 the Company debuted Daniel Nellor's The Will. Staged in the round at Brightspace Gallery, the play sold out an extended run.
Artistic Director Bronwen Coleman is proud of her creative relationship with the City of Casey Department of Sustainability and Youth Services, for whom she has curated youth workshops and led devising processes. Our philanthropic relationship with Calvary Health Palliative Care, established in 2018, continues with regular play readings and workshops with patients, moderated by members of the APC.
