YOUR NEWS – DANIEL WARD ANNOUNCED AS THE WINNER OF THE 51st GEORGE DEVINE AWARD
Daniel Ward is the winner of the 51st George Devine Award for his debut play The Canary and the Crow, picking up a prize of £15k.

With Daniel Ward playing the central role of The Bird, the play was performed at the Brighton and Edinburgh Festivals, and ran at the Arcola Theatre, London at the start of 2020. The UK tour had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
