Chance to win Geoffrey Whitworth trophy for one-act festival play

Have you had a one act play performed at a festival? If so you could be in line for the Geoffrey Whitworth trophy which is awarded annually to an original play, debuting in the UK’s one-act play festivals.

Plays must have been part of festivals organised by All England Theatre Festival, Association of Ulster Drama Festivals, Drama Association of Wales and Scottish Community Drama Association.

The winning play may have a rehearsed reading at the British Final Festival.

Geoffrey Whitworth founded the British Drama League in 1919. He was heavily involved in drama for many years and encouraged original work. His philosophy was to ensure that writers would benefit from seeing their plays performed and adjudicated.
