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.

Drama Awards made

1975 Douglas Livingstone for A Rhino in the Boardroom

1978 John Cundill for Redundant and Waiting

1985 Junction Avenue Theatre Company for Randlords and Rotgut

1990 Norman Coombes A Snake in the Garden

1996 Zakes Mda for The Nun’s Romantic Story

1999 Moira Lovell for Bedtime Stories
