Latest Winners / Recipients

Year: 2021

winner I’ve Been Meaning to Ask You 2018 single work drama

'Why do you have to go to work? How come adults drink to have fun? Is 50 too old to learn to surf? What was life like before the Internet?

'This is a work full of questions. Asked by young people. Answered by adults. Transformed inside a theatre-turned-playground-turned-battleground delivered by Generation Up Next. Watch as age collides with experience in a revealing one-hour tell-all, where adults take a backseat as a powerful panel of 9 to 13-year-olds drop some truths… and the mic.

'This world premiere from the inspiring collective, The Good Room, is intended for adults.'
