Stewart Parker Trust Awards Short List 2015
We are delighted to announce that the four plays shortlisted for the Stewart Park Trust Awards 2015 are A Boy Called Nedd by Emily Gillmor Murphy, Charolais by Noni Stapleton, From Eden by Stephen Jones and Newcastlewest by Dick Walsh.
These four plays were selected from a long list of 28 plays, by a panel of seven readers including independent playwrights, in March 2016.
The winners of the Major Bursary and the BBC Northern Ireland drama award will be announced at the awards ceremony on April 12, 2016.
Set up in honour of the late Belfast playwright, Stewart Parker (1941-1988), the Stewart Parker Trust seeks to encourage new writers for theatre in Ireland, North and South. The main award is the New Playwright Bursary, awarded annually to an emerging playwright. Two BBC Northern Ireland awards have also been established in Stewart Parker's memory and form part of this annual initiative.
