The Open Page - a journal of women's thoughts, questions and visions for theatre
The latest issue 'Theatre - Women - Letters' is available through Magdalena Aotearoa.
‘Letters are personal and secret forms of communication, characteristics which enable us to hear the voices of some seemingly silent women on the past and present. The design of individual letters and of different alphabets, seen as paintings or graphic design, emerge in this issue as action, inspiration, sound, awareness, availability and rhythm to emphasise the individuality, age, tradition and cultural
circumstances of each author.’ Julia Varley

If the Magdalena Project aims to support the work of women in theatre, The Open Page aims to support the reflections of women working in theatre and to encourage them to write so as to start building their own memory and critical perspective within theatre history.
The Open Page aims to give space to many different voices which can be useful to our practice in theatre, keeping a balance in contributions from experienced authors and scholars, practitioners wanting to put thoughts on paper and first-time-writers usually only accustomed to expressing themselves on stage. The Open Page is an annual journal and each issue is dedicated to a theme.
