Playwright competition winners come together

At the beginning of 2018 BBC Radio Solent launched it's first playwrights competition.

The brief was simple: come up with an original 15 minute drama, with a local connection that would be suitable for a daytime broadcast.

Entries came from all over the UK and by the time the competition closed, hundreds of scripts had been submitted.

Each was read and a team of independent judges decided on the winning plays.

The playwrights were invited in to the BBC studios to workshop workshop their scripts, as Neil Sackley reports.
