HOBART theatre enthusiasts' hearts raced last night as local and interstate actors presented a script reading of The Dark Wood - a psychological thriller set on the rugged West Coast.

There are plans to turn the script into a film, which is likely to be filmed in Tasmania.

But first Tasmanian duo Jonathan auf der Heide (director) and Tom Holloway (playwright), are seeking feedback on their script, which is why it was read to the public at Salamanca's Peacock Theatre.

The free reading featured familiar faces including actors Oscar Redding (Van Diemen's Land and Top of the Lake) and Adrienne Pickering (Rake, Home and Away, Candy).

It was held as part of Screen Tasmania's Scripts Aloud initiative, which supports the development of Tasmanian screenplays by providing opportunities to have the scripts read by professional actors in front an audience.

Mr Holloway said there had been interest in the script from producers in Australia and overseas, and he hoped it would be produced in the next couple of years with a budget of between $1-$5 million.

He and Mr auf der Heide plan to shoot the film in Tasmania, to take advantage of Tasmania's scenery while boosting the local industry.

It is Mr Holloway's first screenplay.

His award-winning plays include Beyond the Neck about the 1996 Port Arthur massacre and an adaptation of Storm Boy for the Sydney Theatre Company.

Mr auf der Heide's first feature film Van Diemen's Land was partly filmed in Tasmania.
