About

I've been a keen writer all my life and when I left high school, I studied Professional Writing and Editing at TAFE, rather than take on a generic university Arts course.

Many years later, after trying my hand at novels and screenplays, I turned to live theatre - which I'd always loved. Right now, theatre and I fit. We work together really well. Live theatre excites me on a different level than film, television and books. I'd love to do it all, but right now theatre is my passion.

There's a couple of half-finished novels on my harddrive, and screenplays which have piqued the interest of producers here and abroad - but to no avail. Those are long term goals. Theatre making is where it's at right now.

Keith Gow is a playwright who has dabbled in short filmmaking and occasionally flirts with writing novels. He studied Professional Writing & Editing at Holmesglen TAFE, where he went with every intention of writing film scripts but was thoroughly tempted and engaged with writing for live performance.

His short plays have been performed across Australia and in South East Asia, with several Short & Sweet Theatre festivals under his belt, as well as mounting his one-man show, Richard Di Gregorio: On Time, in both Melbourne and Adelaide at their respective Fringe festivals.

After co-founding The Wooden Leg in 2011, Keith's theatre company has produced two successful seasons of short plays in non-traditional theatre venues and an entry into Short & Sweet Melbourne 2012.

He is working on several projects for 2013 and 2014.
