Congratulations to Melanie and all on the shortlist which also includes:- The Lightness of Touch & Violet Street by Renee Boyer Willisson; Petrol Head by Rochelle Bright; Mill Town by Brett Higginson; and It Wasn't Meant to Be Like This by Michelanne Forster.
The Live Screenplay Competition is a Play Press/Playmarket partnership to find the Best Unfilmed Screenplay. The winner will be given professional advice and time with a script advisor, as appropriate.
While the primary aim is to encourage screenwriters there is also a secret agenda - to introduce a new audience to the potential of the stage as a way to share ideas - and to discover new theatre writing talent.
2010's winner was DOODLEBUG by Peter Griffin.
2009's winner was FUN RIDE, by Benedict Reid.
