The Alfred Fagon Award recognizes and celebrates Black British Playwrights of Caribbean and African descent.

The Alfred Fagon Award for Best New Play of the Year is supported by The Peggy Ramsay Foundation and individual donors.  The £6,000 prize is awarded annually from an open call for submissions.

The Roland Rees Bursary is supported by a legacy from the Roland Rees Estate.  The £3,000 bursary is awarded annually by the Trustees to a playwright to enable them to devote more time to their writing.

The Mustapha Matura Award and Mentoring Programme supports newly emerging and young black playwrights of Caribbean and African descent up to the age of 25.  This prize is awarded annually from an open call for submissions.  The £3,000 prize and mentoring programme is supported by the Estate of Mustapha Matura, Garrick Charitable Trust and The Henry Kent Trust and many individual donors.

We are a registered charity and, if you are a UK tax-payer, for every £1 you donate we can claim back 25p from the Government.

We are a not-for-profit organisation.  If you would like to support our work please make a donation and  select either Alfred Fagon Award or Mustapha Matura Award and Mentoring Programme from the available options.
