Congratulations to Adura Onashile who has been awarded Channel 4 Playwrights’ Scheme Bursary.
Adura has already embarked upon one-year attachment with the Traverse Theatre. Their principal task over the 12 months is to write at least one full-length play. She will also have the opportunity to submit her play for the Sonia Friedman Productions Award in the year following her bursary.
Playwrights were nominated by UK theatre Artistic Directors, with the five winners selected by the scheme’s panel chaired by Sir Richard Eyre and including Film4’s Commissioning Executive Julia Oh and Channel 4’s Head of Development for Drama, Matthew Wilson.
Adura has also been announced as the National Theatre of Scotland’s Artist in Residence. Find out more at the NTS website.
