Caitlin George is an Australian playwright, actor, and theatre-maker based out of Melbourne. Drawn to theatre by its collision of the possible and the practical, her work is driven by a compulsion for gender equality and a love for the explosive potential of language. She has worked across south-eastern Australia, within the United States, and internationally in India, Mexico, and Canada. She most recently performed her own piece CAKE: a journey of fluid and frosting at The Chain, NYC.
Selected credits include - New York City; CAKE (Shellscrape Theatre) at The Chain, Panic Everything's Fine (The SuperGeographics), Adam & Evie at Dixon Place, Manhattan with the SITI Conservatory, and Hang and Burn by Kate Tarker. Melbourne, Australia; CAKE at The Courthouse on Errol for Melbourne Fringe Festival, Let's Get Practical! Live at The Malthouse Theatre, and Beers & Trees at La Mama Theatre. Regional Australia; Mad Forest by Caryl Churchill directed by Bryce Ives with FUAA, Puss In Boots by Angela Carter directed by Justine Campbell, and Bleed. Pack. Wrap at Helen McPherson Theatre, Ballarat.
As a playwright, her curiosity lies in reshaping our inherited narratives to examine cultural assumptions of gendered social roles. Through investigating myth, storytelling structures, and unsung histories, her plays question where we are and where we can go next.
Caitlin is a company member of The SuperGeographics and a graduate of the Federation University’s Arts Academy, Australia, and the SITI Conservatory.
