It gives me great pleasure to announce that my short play A Brother Born, has been selected as one of three winning pieces in this year’s Soundwork-UK playwriting competition.
The play explores the relationships between father and son.
As part of the prize, the piece will be produced as an audio play and will be made available online for free. This will be completed during June/July 2017.
I will post links to the completed play once available.
Thank you to Neal and the team at http://www.soundwork-uk.co.uk/competitions for their belief in the play.
Congratulations also to my fellow winners:
Seth Freeman – Seth Freeman’s plays have been presented at over a hundred seventy theatres and festivals around the world. He has written for print (The New York Times, Southern Theatre Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, the Huffington Post, The Hill, etc.), screen and television, for which he created, most recently, the U.S. series Lincoln Heights. He has received multiple Emmys, Writers Guild Awards, Golden Globes, Peabody, P.E.N., First Amendment, Christopher, Humanitas and numerous other honours for screenwriting, fiction writing and journalism. He contributes non-writing time to community and international organisations dealing with health care, education, the empowerment of women and human rights.
Phil Taylor – The advent of retirement and the availability of some extra time have led to a new focus on trying to write and also coping with the arrival of a dog. Having been cleverly outwitted by the latter ( you can read about my failures to become pack master at my blog http://www.philtaylor60.simplesite.com ) I have really enjoyed attempting to put together some vaguely humorous writing. I am very grateful to all at Soundwork for the opportunity they have provided, and to those friends and relatives who might just catch glimpses of themselves in my work.
