The Lysicrates Prize celebrates the best new Australian writing by mid-career writers. Past winners of the prize include Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam by Steve Rodgers and The Literati by Justin Fleming, and both have gone onto mainstage productions.
Thank you to all those playwrights that made submissions.
The Lysicrates Prize awards $15,000 to a playwright to commission the winning play. This year, further support will be provided to ensure that the commissioned work receives a professional development.
Playwrights submitted the first 15 minutes (no more than 20 pages) of a play that is yet to be written. The submissions were read by a panel of industry leaders to determine the three finalists.
The three finalists will have their submissions performed by a professional director and cast at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, where the audience will vote for the winner. Click here to find out more about our 3 finalists.
