The Liverpool Hope Playwriting Prize is a national competition run by Liverpool Hope University and Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre. The prize is looking to uncover the next great comedy play, with a £10,000 prize for the winner and the opportunity for the play to be produced.
The biennial prize attracts entries from across the country, from new and established writers alike. Judges of the prize have included Frank Cottrell Boyce, Kathy Burke and Les Dennis. Les went on to star in “ A Miracle on Great Homer St”, a play which came runner up in the inaugural prize.
The dates for the 2024 prize are yet to be announced. Entrants must be over the age of 18 and reside in either the UK or the Republic of Ireland.
