George Landen Dann

George Landen Dann was one of Australia’s most prominent early playwrights. Born in 1904, George developed a lifelong interest in theatre, authoring over twenty plays for the stage, for television, and for radio. His work reflected his own struggles with family and social obligations, as well as his highly developed social conscience. However, for much of his life, George was only a part-time playwright – until his retirement George worked as a draftsman for the Brisbane City Council. George then moved to Coolum on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast where he continued to produce new work until his death in 1977. Though celebrated in his lifetime, George’s contribution to Queensland theatre has been memorialised through the George Landen Dann Award, awarded to exceptional young Queensland playwrights
