On the back of a hugely successful run at the Royal Exchange Theatre, receiving acclaim from local and national press, The 2015 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting winner WISH LIST (Katherine Soper’s first play) opened at the Royal Court Theatre to further acclaim.
‘People don’t have moments in their lives where they can pinpoint that’s where everything changed but weirdly enough for the Bruntwood was one of those moments for me. Its given me more confidence. It has changed my life, undoubtedly.’
