The winner of The Play Press' Live Screenplay Competition 2009 for Best Unfilmed Screenplay is Benedict Reid for his screenplay, Fun Ride.
The prize of a professional, public rehearsed reading in a theatre venue (sponsored by Playmarket) will take place later in the year at Circa Theatre, followed by appropriate development support.
There were far more submissions than expected, and the quality was very high. Shortlisted were:-
Graeme Tetley - Riverside Drive
Barbara Else - The Warrior Queen
David Geary - Hammer Horror
Matthew Saville - Firehands
Dean Parker - The Little Corporal
Deadline for the next Live Screenplay Competition is January 31st 2010.
