    Shame I didn’t go to Trinity College Cambridge, eh, along with many other playwright wannabes I suspect. Oh, and those poor graduates there that finished more than five years ago! That really is levelling up the playing fields! When is an ‘opportunity’ nothing of the sort?

      Sorry, I didn’t realise it was any university in the UK, misread and apologise for my comment. Still not the most inclusive is it – when have I ever read of an opportunity open to ‘non-graduates specifically and exclusively.
