We are pleased to be hosting The University of East Anglia’s Snoo Wilson Prize for Playwriting Showcase and Award Ceremony here at The Garage.
The Snoo Wilson Prize for Playwriting seeks to reward the most inventive, imaginative and formally achieved piece of scriptwriting as a dissertation by an Undergraduate or Postgraduate student in the School of LDC.
A shortlist of 4 scripts will have extracts performed as rehearsed readings following which the winning script will be announced.
Snoo Wilson graduated from UEA in 1969 and began writing in the same year. He was one of a handful of playrights who reinvented British theatre in the 1970s and 80s. Together with Howard Brenton, David Hare and Tony Bicât, he founded Portable Theatre Company. In April 2016 UEA launched the Snoo Wilson Archive, a collections of Snoo’s back catalogue and personal corresponds generously donated by his family, as part of the British Archive for Contemporary Writing.
