About

Who is Keith Gow?



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's had two full-length readings for actors and producers in New York with his plays Painting with Words & Fire and A Modern Superwoman.

His latest show, Who Are You Supposed to Be, premiered at Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 and went on to be performed in London and at Fringe Festivals in Melbourne and Adelaide.

He has written two episodes for the upcoming Channel 31 drama series, Sonnigsburg.

He's always looking ahead, wrestling with which project to start on next.
