The Times They Are A Changin' - The winning entries

Congratulations to the winners of our first Player Playwright short play contest of 2019.

The entry judged to be best the audience was The Busker in which a would-be Bob Dylan sings about the times a-changing but finds adjusting to a new world more difficult.

It was written by two co-writers: Rob Fearn and Cheryl Freedman

The runner-up was The Spicer Show by Jo Bhouri – a very switched on piece set in a very Alan Partridge type TV studio.

The theme for this contest was The Times They Are A Changin'
