Tyrell Williams has won this year's George Devine Award for his play Red Pitch, published by Nick Hern Books.
The play, a coming-of-age drama set on a South London council estate, was first staged at the Bush Theatre, London, in February 2022. Williams was named Best Writer at the Stage Debut Awards earlier this year.
Founded in 1966 in memory of the Royal Court Theatre in London's artistic director George Devine, the award celebrates new writing.
Amongst the other dramas shortlisted for this year's George Devine Award were NHB-published plays The Ministry of Lesbian Affairs by Iman Qureshi, All of Us by Francesca Martinez and No Particular Order by Joel Tan.
