From 2006 to 2011, 9minds presented 9minds9works, play readings showcasing local writing at the Arts Centre.

The season featured some of Australia’s most exciting new and established playwrights: Gareth Ellis, Noëlle Janaczewska, Alex Broun, Kevin McGrath, Ross Mueller, Kit Lazaroo, Anthony Crowley, Jane Harrison and Lally Katz.

9minds9works, reflected a commitment by 9minds to support Australian writing.  Kill the Wolf by Tim Nolan which premiered at the BlackBox in March 2008, and Ollie and the Minotaur by award winning playwright Duncan Graham and theatre company floogle which toured Adelaide and Melbourne in April/May 2008, were developed and supported through the program.
