Pint‐Sized Plays

 

2020 Results

We're very pleased to be able to announce the winners and runners up in this year's competition. There was enormous number of very good plays entered, so our six winners and four runners up deserve a big pat on the back to have beaten so many to the top slots.  At this moment, given the coronavirus, we are not sure whether they will get the perfomances they deserve - but we certainly hope we will be able to stage them.  If we can't then we will be making cash awards instead, and we'll  update this website as soon as we have further news.  Meanwhile join with us in congratulating our top ten writers - and commiserating with all those that didn't quite make it this time round.

 

The six winning plays are, in alphabetical order: 

Along Any Minute by William Andrew Patterson

Arm Wars by Chris Morrow

Dating with Dostoyevsky by Chloe Banks

How Did We Do? by Angela Jane Pressland

Love in Lockdown? by Bart Meehan

The Next Ivan Sharansky by Jim Geoghan

And the four runners up are:
A Little Scotchie by John Spooner

Crossed Wires by Rob Taylor

Dinner & Destiny by Dennis Jones

My Hero by Tony Domaille

 

We're very pleased to say that the results reflect the international nature of the Pint-sized Plays writing competition too, with winners from the USA,  Northern Ireland and Australia as well as the UK!
