British Theatre Challenge Winners 2017
Thank you to everybody that has entered this year’s playwriting competition – It’s been a pleasure reading all of your scripts over the past few months so please, keep up the awesome writing!
Choosing ten plays has been an incredibly difficult task, well done to those writers who were chosen for the shortlist but we also highly commend all writers who entered their plays, it’s no easy feat; “Being a playwright is like the equivalent of doing a jigsaw puzzle that has 1,500 pieces, and it’s a jigsaw of a blue sky. Not a cloud in sight.” Lewis Black
Each Winning script will get a professional performance over the 20th and 21st October at the newly rebranded Stockwell Playhouse London, and be filmed and considered for publication.
