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:

The winners are:
- Chazz Redhead – The Malteser Falcon
- Poppy Corbett – It’s My Party

- 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.
