Adam Kay

Adam Kay is a playwright, director, and an actor. He is the founder and currently the Artistic Director of Dreaming Child Productions.

Adam was a writer in the 2022 Assembly (La Boite).

Adam believes that theatre is a powerful medium that can offer a unique and transformative experience. Living in the 21st-century, we are constantly bombarded with entertainment, content, and stimulus. We hold the power to be entertained in the palm of our hand, which raises a serious question: why would anyone take the time and effort to leave the comfort of home and pay for a ticket to see a theatre show? Adam believes that theatre needs to offer a different and deeper psychological experience layered with stimulus which would be impossible to get when experiencing any other art form. Adam describes his practice as a search for the new contemporary.

Some of his performances include Queensland Theatre: First Casualty, The Laramie Project; Core ensemble member of the Israeli National Theatre: Ghetto, Punk Rock; Dreaming Child Productions: Hiding Behind, 1+1.
