The Dionysian aims to highlight emerging and established playwrights of all genres and backgrounds through a quarterly publication and online content.


At The Dionysian we believe a play exists for everyone.

We want to hono(u)r the power of the theatrical script, digested as an individual, or exchanged out loud from one voice to another. 

Plays hold an undeniable force, allowing humanity to connect in an incomparable way.  We believe the playwright provides the breeding ground for a raw exchange of spirit that all artists should have the chance to experience. Our main goal is to provide a platform to make this more accessible and showcase these works whilst providing a useful resource and playing field for the theatre community.

Moreover, we hope to break down barriers in the arts, dispel myths about theatre as an archaic or elitist art form, and offer readers a provocative experience through theatrical text.
