Papatango champion the next generation of brilliant playwrights, especially those who might otherwise lack pathways into theatre. Their discoveries have won BAFTAs, OffWestEnd, Alfred Fagon and Royal National Theatre Foundation awards, premiering in over twenty countries. 

Join us to listen to three scorching new plays chosen from over 1,400 submitted from across the UK. 

The 2021 Papatango New Writing Prize winners are: 

  • Some Of Us Exist In The Future by Nkenna Akunna 
  • Ghost Stories From An Old Country by Tajinder Singh Hayer
  • The Silence and The Noise by Tom Powell

These new pieces have been produced in association with English Touring Theatre, and you can listen through individual headsets which can be collected from the Box Office or your own personal headphones. 

Each play is about one hour long; we recommend that you book a headset for the duration or number of plays you wish to listen to (max three hours in one sitting). Any questions please contact the Box Office on 01243 781312.
