News   Soho Playwrights Holds Competition for Playwrights

Soho Theatre is now accepting entries for the Westminster Prize, Soho Theatre Company's and Westminster City Council's annual playwriting competition for first-time playwrights who live, work or study in Westminster.

The competition has two categories: under 18, and 18 and over.

Entrants should submit a short play which is approximately 10 minutes long and contains no more than two characters, based on a given photograph. This year's photograph is of a pair of naked feet standing on a double-yellow line.

The image can be seen at the Soho Theatre website: www.sohotheatre.com. Alternatively they can telephone the theatre to obtain a copy of the photograph, and further details of the competition, on 020 7478 0130.
