Works.

The Summerworks Theatre Festival (where we produced Kingship de Facto a couple of years ago) has launched a theatre journal called Works. If you haven't read it, you should try to get a hold of a copy or read it online here.
Our intent with the magazine is to feature the theatre arts, its artists and its ideas. Too often we see writing in our newspapers and literary journals about the art by individuals who are outside of the art form. There is room for this sort of journalism, however WORKS. has been created to give space for theatre artists to write
about their form, and its readers an authentic insight into the craft rather than a presumed, idealized and/or theorized.

The first issue concentrates on writers and creators and the range of articles and perspectives is really interesting. I had no intention of reading every article but found I couldn't put it down. I can't recommend it highly enough and I look forward to the next issue.
