Young Writers vs Professional Writers

5 young and emerging writers will go head to head with 5 professional writers: Milly Thomas, Nathan Bryon, Emma Dennis Edwards, Kalungi Ssebandeke, and Sarah Kosar for the title of audience favourite. But here’s the twist: You won’t know the author of each play when you cast your vote. The play with the most votes, wins.

Will it be the pro team or the emerging team? YOU decide.
