The Charles Barron Prize for Doric Drama is now up for grabs. The first prize, which is in memory of playwright Charles Barron (who sadly died in 2012), is worth £1000, with two runner-up prizes of £300 and £100. Entry is free. The plays must be in North East Scots – the Doric – and must either be in one act or a full-length play. They must also be original plays never performed or published before. Deadline for submissions is 30 September 2013 and winning entries will be announced in December. The winners will be considered for performance by the drama group Fleeman Productions.
