N.B. It is vital that play scripts do not contain any means of personal identification; there should be nothing in the header or footer sections apart from page numbers and the first page should contain the play's title and nothing else. For the avoidance of doubt: the title page must NOT include the name of the playwright. If the script is deemed to reveal the identity of the playwright, the play submission may be withdrawn from the competition at the discretion of the Prize administrators.
