James Tait Black Prize for Drama nomination for hang

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

debbie tucker green's engrossing drama hang has been shortlisted for the James Tait Black Prize for Drama 2016.

A shattering play about one woman’s unspeakable decision, hang was described by the Evening Standard as 'a stark 60 minutes of staccato poetry', and praised by The Stage as 'a taut, measured piece about the nature of justice and revenge'. It premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2015, in a production directed by the author, and featuring Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Claire Rushbrook and Shane Zaza.

Also on the shortlist are People, Places and Things by Duncan Macmillan, and Iphigenia in Splott by Gary Owen. This year’s winner will be announced at a ceremony at 5pm on Monday, 22 August in the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh. To see more about the ceremony, and to book tickets, click here.
