23 April 2012

The Theatre Centre announces the winner for the Brian Way Award 2012.

The 2012 winner of the Brian Way Award was announced on Thursday 19 April. Evan Placey won the award for his play ‘Holloway Jones’. He was presented the winning prize of £6,000 by last year’s winner Keith Saha at Shoreditch Town Hall.
 
On receiving the award Evan said, “Thank you to Theatre Centre for this incredibly generous award which will give me the time to write something else which is the most amazing thing for a writer. Thank you to Synergy Theatre Project and thank you mainly to the young people who sat there with me and told me their stories.”
 
The award celebrates the best new plays for young people professionally produced or commissioned and performed in the UK in the past year.
 
Natalie Wilson, Theatre Centre’s Artistic Director says: “The judges felt that Evan Placey’s writing displayed an inherent theatricality in his use of language and imagery and the truthful story-telling showed a great talent and understanding in writing for young audiences.”
