Sixteenfeet Productions and Lambeth Libraries present First Draft, a new writing festival, on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 June at Brixton Library. This April we re-launched the search for emerging playwrights in the borough and were bowled over by the number of plays we received.

The winning scripts were selected by a panel of industry judges:

  • Denton Chikura, actor and playwright

The winners are:

  • Chazz Redhead – The Malteser Falcon
  • Poppy Corbett – It’s My Party
  • Conor Carroll – No More Starmix
  • Olu Alakija – The Body
  • Holly Robinson – Fault
  • David Lydon – Surveillance
  • Sandra Wareham – Fluteman – the Lambeth Reader’s Group Winner
  • fifteen year old Riona Millar -The Lilies – winner of the 21 and under category.

The selected plays will be developed with a director and cast, and staged as part of the Lambeth Readers and Writers Festival.

Date: Friday 5 and Saturday 6 June
Time: 7.30pm.
Location: Brixton Library, Brixton Oval, SW2 1LB.
