The judges would like to thank all those who entered the first international Sky Blue Play writing competition. There has been a fantastic response and the standard has been very high. The judges have compiled a list of plays that they say should be highly commended. From this list a shortlist of plays will be chosen to be rehearsed and then performed to a public audience who will vote for the winning play.
