David Cole




I am a writer from rural Australia. ​I previously worked as a journalist for Australian Community Media, writing mainly for The Goulburn Post. 

I have written five plays. The Ballad of Mary Ann Brownlow (2004), Windfall (2009), and Life's a Bitch (2014), were produced by the Lieder Theatre. 

I have also worked with the Canberra Street Theatre on a play called Irene's Wish, which was included in their First Seen program in 2018. 

I have been a mentor for the Mighty PLaywrights program. 

A short season of my new play, The Waltz, has just been performed in Goulburn, Crookwell and Braidwood in March 2022. This short touring season was funded by Create NSW. 

If you are interested in either reading or producing any of these plays contact me at:  david.cole@y7mail.com
