SOHO: WRITING AWARD ’203rd September 2020

Delighted for Sorcha McCaffrey who has been longlisted for Soho Theatre’s Verity Bargate Award.


Since 1982, the Verity Bargate Award, Soho Theatre’s foremost playwriting award, has uncovered the best new and emerging writers. It has launched the careers of some of Britain’s most established playwrights and screenwriters including Matt Charman (Bridge of Spies), Vicky Jones (HBO’s Run), Toby Whithouse (Doctor Who) and many, many more. This year’s award will be judged by a panel of industry experts including former Soho writers Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Arinzé Kene and Laura Wade, screenwriter Russell T Davies, actress and playwright Lolita Chakrabarti.


 “If anyone needs reminding why we absolutely have to have theatres back in our lives, they should look no further than this inspiring, inspired, richly diverse, fabulously imagined and utterly necessary body of work from 20 emerging voices.” – Stephen Garrett on the Verity Bargate Award 2020 longlist.
