Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.
This week’s pick: The People’s Play Award: A Playwriting Competition for Northern Writers
Description: This Award is for playwrights from the North of England who are yet to have a play performed professionally. Past winners include Peter Straughan (BAFTA & Oscar-winner for ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’), Carina Rodney (Audible, BBC Radio 4, Live Theatre) and Alison Carr (National Theatre, Finalist: Women’s Prize for Playwriting, BBC Radio 4).
Why is it so great? Here’s one for our Northern playwrights! This is a great competition which gives one winning writer a five-night production by us in the People’s Theatre Studio in June 2023 and a cash prize of £1,000! Apply by 30th September!
