JUTE came into being in 1992 when three passionate theatre makers living in Cairns met and creative sparks began to fly. The three founding members of JUTE are Kathryn Ash, Suellen Maunder and Susan Prince. JUTE’s first production launched International Womens’ Day in March 1993 at the height of summer in the un-airconditioned arts centre (shed!). The work was fiery, raw and unique in the region….it was an instant success! JUTE produces plays, tells stories, tours and provides a vast and diverse range of training and development programs for emerging and established writers, actors and theatre professionals.
JUTE is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
