For a play to be considered an Adelaide Premiere it will fall into one of the following categories:
(a) The text has never received a live stage performance of any form in Adelaide.
(b) The text has been performed in Adelaide as a radio play, a film, or as a reading but not as a fully staged production.
(c) The text has been performed in Adelaide as part of a school or university program, but not as a fully staged, ticketed and public production by a recognised theatre company.
(d) The text is an adaptation or translation which is so significantly different from previously performed versions that it represents a new experience for Adelaide audiences.
