"Inhabiting some lost half-acre between ghost play and black satire, Emilie Collyer's Dream Home is a biting comedy that mines the state of suburban dreaming in the 21st century." The Age
Welcome to the website and blog of Emilie Collyer, Australian playwright and author.
My writing explores the imagined and the uncanny, where the alien feels familiar and the familiar is distinctly strange. Nearly all of my work has a speculative bent, from sci-fi stories, to absurdist plays, tales of the supernatural to adventures in magic realism. It's been described as an adventurous take on contemporary life, bringing a truly Australian voice to the timely and the timeless.
If you have any questions at all or would like to know more about my writing, teaching or appearances, please get in touch via the contact form.
Thanks for visiting.
