Breakwater presents its last show of the year called 'Winner Stays On'. It comprises of four short plays featured over our two scratch nights in February and March this year. These were the four most popular runners up who were unlucky not to win the full commission but were deemed worthy of a second showing. The plays will be competing against each other for a further cash prize. The plays were chosen by audience vote and come from as far afield as New Zealand.

The evening will see four plays; ‘Robert and Rose’, ‘Geordie Heroine’, ‘An enlargement of the Heart’ and ‘Interlude in the Park’ compete for prize money of £100 decided by audience vote.

‘Robert and Rose’ is a family drama with a secret to be revealed as a father and son confront each other. ‘Geordie Heroine’ is about two women, one of whom visits her former pupil as she is released from custody after fighting for women’s rights as a suffragette in Newcastle.’ An Enlargement of the Heart’ is a complex drama set in the prison cell of a man who believes he has been wrongly imprisoned. ‘An Interlude in the Park’ sees a young homeless woman meet a suicidal young man and they strike up an unlikely friendship.

Breakwater Theatre Company are always looking to develop creative talent. Aspiring writers can submit their scripts to info@breakwatertheatre.co.uk.

Winner Stays On takes place in the Albert Room at Cleethorpes Library on Friday, November 29, from 7:30pm. Tickets cost £5, advanced booking is advised by calling the Library on (01472) 323650.
