Winner of the Freerange Theatre Company’s Playframe Short Story Competition.

Part of the ‘Writes of Passage’ Project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund resulting in the production and performance of the play ‘Tin Can Lurky’ based on the winning short story ‘Affordable Principles’ by David Lewis Pogson.

“The most important ingredient is an original storyline that can be transformed by the company into a performance”

“… your story was the winning entry… the company is now in rehearsal devising a piece of theatre … to develop a performance to celebrate rural heritage. Your story … is being woven into this performance to provide the narrative.” – Wren Chapman, Director of FRC
