EKP and Paines Plough: The Women’s Prize for Playwriting 2020

The Women’s Prize for Playwriting is an open invitation to all writers who identify as female in the UK and Ireland to create vivid, exciting, and brave new work for the stage.


The aim of the Prize is to celebrate and support women playwrights and to discover the best new work from writers at all levels of experience. We are interested in plays that rejoice in the depth and range of your imagination, that feast on dramatic possibility and are ambitious on all scales and subjects. The criteria of the prize has been designed to allow you to write exactly the play you want, unhampered by restrictions or limitations.
