Philip Parsons Young Playwrights Award

The Philip Parsons Young Playwrights Award is awarded each year to a playwright whose work demonstrates an original and compelling theatrical voice. Open to NSW authors under 35. The prize is a $10 000 commission to write a new play. The authors are shortlisted on a previously written play, and asked to present an outline for a proposed new work.
