A Sentimental Journey & The Reunion – 10-minute Play competition winners

Congratulations to the winners of the Playwrights Association of New Zealand’s 2015 10-Minute Play Competition:

1st prize: A Sentimental Journey by Paula Crimmens, Mt Albert, Auckland

Judge’s Comment: This stayed with me for some time. I kept thinking back to it for some reason. I think the characters are wonderfully drawn, it’s a very efficient piece but contains such a big, moving story.  It will be great for actors to play.

2nd prize: The Reunion by Tim Hambleton, Dunedin

Judge’s Comment: I really like the build of this piece. It is also perfectly suited to the short play format. There is some great comedy to be had and it’s wonderful that it’s a scenario that a lot of us can imagine/identify with.
