The Lysicrates Foundation and Griffin Theatre Company are proud to present the 2018 Lysicrates Martin Prize for playwrights writing for children.

The prize is intended to support mid-career playwrights and provides an opportunity for finalists to receive professional development and funding support. Last year’s inaugural prize saw three finalists present their works in staged readings, with winner Katie Pollock taking home the prize for her work Summerland.

The top 3 finalists will see their works read and staged at Riverside Theatres, and the winner will be chosen by the children on the day.

A fun and interactive way for children to get involved with theatre from a young age, The Martin Lysicrates Prize is a load of entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. This event is FREE but bookings are essential to secure your place.

Recommended for children aged 11 to 14 years.
