Tracey Trinder Playwright’s Award

4 Feb 2022


“The Tracey Trinder Playwright’s Award encourages women writers with a slant on comedy. Tracey was a stage and screenwriter and had a unique voice in the world of comedy. This award honours her name and her commitment to women’s writing.”

Mark Kilmurry, Artistic Director, Ensemble Theatre.

The Tracey Trinder Playwright’s Award recognises an outstanding unproduced comedy or comedy drama written by a woman playwright including a trans and/or gender-diverse playwright.

The award consists of $7,500 prize, a development workshop, and an opportunity for your work to go into full production as part of Ensemble Theatre’s annual season.


In 2022 we received 44 entries for this unique opportunity, and judging has commenced!

The winning play will be developed in 2023 and enjoy its world premiere on Ensemble’s stage in 2024.

Stay tuned for the announcement of the winner in November 2022.
