Divorce On The Rocks by Michael Sherbourne

On The Rack by Ray Diamond

The task was to write a sequel, prequel or interlude to Shaw’s play On the Rocks or a short play based on the extraordinary world events of our time and how they might have been treated by Shaw if he had been alive today. Both winning entries managed to combine the two options, bringing On the Rocks up to date in two very entertaining short plays.

The winner, Michael Sherbourne of Luton in Essex will be presented with his Prize of £500, and runner-up Raymond Diamond of London will receive £200.
There are two plays during the summer on the Lawn at Shaw’s Corner,
