The Liverpool Hope Playwriting Prize is the UK’s second largest playwriting prize after the Bruntwood Prize. As well as being presented with £10,000, the winning writer’s work will be considered for production by the Royal Court Liverpool. More than 200 writers from across the UK submitted their work.

The competition was open to both new and established writers, and all judging has taken place anonymously and the winner will be announced at a gala dinner at Liverpool Hope University in April to coincide with the Angel Field Festival. The scripts are currently being read by a panel of judges including playwrite John Godber and Kevin Fearon from the Royal Court.

At this free admission event submitted scripts for the Playwrighting Prize are giving a public reading.
