The Martin-Lysicrates Prize is a competition for plays written for adolescents that are modelled on the ancient Greek tradition, but with a modern twist. Talented Australian playwrights have submitted the first act of a brand new play to the Prize and the three finalists’ entries will receive a staged reading.
Due to the current circumstances, the 2020 Martin-Lysicrates Prize has been cancelled. All playwright submissions will automatically be entered for the 2021 Prize.
