Many congratulations to Martin Nathan, one of the team at Story Radio who has written and produced two of the short stories we feature on the podcast (Mock Crab and The Vulnerable). He has been chosen as a Semi-finalist from 437 entries. Much excitement here at Story Radio Towers!

The Woodward Prize is part of Cultural Stages: The Woodward International Drama and Dance Initiative and is given once every four years. The aim of this program is to broaden and deepen the understanding of international cultures through a competition for plays addressing relevant themes. Plays submitted for this competition should have a primary focus on cultures from countries other than the US.

The winning play will be given a fully produced production as part of the University of New Hampshire’s 2021-22 Department of Theatre and Dance main stage season. The winning Playwright will receive a cash prize of $5,000, plus expenses to travel to the University of New Hampshire and stay for the one week of performances. Finalists will be posted on the University of New Hampshire Department of Theatre and Dance website in October 2020.
