The
Shaw
Society

After much deliberation, the Judges for the

2016 TF EVANS AWARD

organised by The Shaw Society, decided to split the main prize between two winning entries.

 

The winners were:

 

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.  

 

 

This annual writing competition is held in memory of the late T.F.Evans, long time editor of the Shaw Society Journal. The prize is offered for an additional scene to a play by Bernard Shaw. It will be awarded to the entry that most impresses the judges who will be looking for that combination of features for which Shaw was famous: wit and wordplay within a social and political context.

The winning entry will receive £500.
