Windsor Fringe invites you to The 17th Kenneth Branagh Award for New Drama Writing THIS YEAR ONLINE & GLOBAL!

Available to view from:   Thursday 15th October at 7.30pm (UK) to 15th November 11.59pm (UK)

Join us for our 17th Annual Writing Award. This year, we have seen 236 scripts submitted from 13 countries.

Each year our annual Kenneth Branagh Award for New Drama Writing receives over 200 submissions from all over the world.

We have a team of readers who read each script and score them based on a points system. This year, our readers have had the extremely hard challenge of narrowing down 236 scripts into 3 for our final.

Join us on this virtual journey as we discover this year’s winner.
