For 2019, the English committee will select three English translations of contemporary plays originally written in a language other than English.
Translations of contemporary European stage plays originally written in languages from the wider European area (Europe, Central Asia and the Mediterranean Area) may be submitted for consideration.
All plays submitted will also be considered for inclusion in a British Academy funded festival of readings of contemporary plays from Europe. The festival will take place in London in Spring 2019. Playwrights whose plays are selected for the festival will be offered a contribution towards the travel and accommodation costs of attending their reading in London.
The submissions will be judged on the following criteria:
- The quality of the play.
- The quality of the translation.
- ‘Producibility’ – i.e. the suitability of the translated play for an English speaking audience.
Deadline: 5pm on Tuesday 31 July 2018
