Join some of today’s most innovative playwrights for an afternoon of insightful interviews and performed readings. The James Tait Black Prize for Drama celebrates ground-breaking drama produced worldwide in the last year. The £10,000 prize is awarded to the play that most clearly demonstrates an original voice and makes a significant contribution to the art form.
