Huge congratulations to Story Radio writer and producer Martin Nathan, who has been shortlisted for the Nick Darke Award 2020 with his stage play Green Anarchy. He is working on a new short story for us as well which will be available for you to listen to soon.

Following playwright Nick Darke’s death, the Nick Darke Award was conceived in 2006 by his wife, the artist and film-maker Jane Darke, with the support of his family. Nick Darke wrote in many forms but earned his living in the world of theatre, screen and radio. The award is funded by Falmouth University through the Academy of Music and Theatre Arts (AMATA) and the School of Communication. The relationship between Falmouth and the award recognises Nick Darke’s impact across the arts and endeavours to continue his legacy through the promotion of talent.
