Olive Schreiner Prize for Drama
The Olive Schreiner Prize is an annual award to new and emergent talent administered by the English Academy of Southern Africa.
Principles of the award
This is taken in turn for Poetry, Prose and Drama. So the Drama Award is awarded every three years.
Many years drama awards were not made. Also interesting to note is the fact that most of the truly prominent figures (Athol Fugard, Barney Simon, Paul Slabolepszy, Anthony Akerman, Janice Honeyman, Fiona Coyne, William Kentridge and the Handspring Puppet Company, Brett Bailey, etc) do not feature.
