We are thrilled to share the news that ‘Denouement’ by Irish writer John Morton, has been shortlisted for the 2020 Popcorn Award for new plays.
A Lyric Theatre commission, and a co-production with the Traverse Theatre, this new play was scheduled to premiere at the cancelled Edinburgh Fringe and play for one week on the Main Stage at the Lyric.
‘Denouement’ is one of eight plays shortlisted out of 133 eligible plays that were due to premiere at this year’s festival.
Literary Manager, Rebecca Mairs, says:
“John submitted DENOUEMENT for our inaugural New Playwrights Programme and we commissioned it straight away. It simply popped off the page and we could tell immediately that John was a uniquely talented, original, and dynamic writer that we just had to work with. I’ve loved working on this superb play and we’re absolutely over the moon that John and his work are getting the recognition they richly deserve.”
