Alpine Fellowship > Theatre Prize 2020 (Sweden)
In 2020, the Alpine Fellowship Theatre Prize will be awarded for the best playwriting response to the theme ‘Forgiveness and Retribution’. The Prize is aimed at encouraging theatre writers at the start of their careers to explore and challenge philosophical ideas using the dramatic form.
The prize will be £3000 plus a rehearsed reading at the Fellowship’s annual Symposium in Fjällnäs, Sweden, which the winner will be invited to attend. Runners up will be invited to attend the symposium to exhibit their work, with all food and accommodation covered. Travel expenses will be reimbursed up to a total of £500.
The final piece must be no more than 45 minutes in length and require no more than four actors. The winning play will be performed as a rehearsed reading, so simplicity in staging is preferred. This prize is open to theatre writers from around the world above 18 years of age.
Deadline (extended): 15 April 2020
