Liverpool Hope Playwriting Prize
If it’s one thing social isolation will do, it’s give people a lot of time on their hands. Why not put this time to good use and enter the fourth Liverpool Hope Playwriting Prize?
Have you always wanted to see your work played out on stage? Got a script half-finished or an idea that you just haven’t quite turned into words? Use this time to finally work on that creative project.
The competition is a collaboration between our theatre and Liverpool Hope University. If your script is picked as a winner, you’ll receive a whopping £10,000. That’s definitely not pocket change. You could also see your play being performed on stage.
There are also cash prizes available for scripts the judges have commended.
How can I enter my script?
Entries are simple-ish. You’ll need to submit an original, unperformed script which will be reviewed and judged anonymously. Entrants must be over the age of 18 and live in either the UK or the Republic of Ireland.
The deadline for entries is 31 May 2020. You can find out more details about the competition, including how to enter via www.playwritingprize.com.
We have already seen a spike in entries following the outbreak of Coronavirus. Put this time to good use!
