T.F. Evans

Award 2016



After much deliberation, the Judges for the 2016 TF EVANS AWARD, organised by The Shaw Society, have decided to split the main prize between two winning entries.  The winners are:  Theodore D. Kemper of New York, with  Don Juan in Heaven, based on Shaw’s Man & Superman and  Anne Wright of London  with  Epilogue to Heartbreak House. The task was to write an additional scene to a play by Bernard Shaw.  The judges were looking for that combination of features for which Shaw was famous: wit and wordplay within a social and political context.


 The presentation of the Awards will take place on Thursday, 29th September at 7 for 7-30pm at The Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL.  A script-in-hand performance of the winning  entries will follow the presentation.  











A Creative Writing Award Annual Prize of £500 held in memory of the late T.F. Evans, long time editor of the Shaw Society Journal
