Toronto: The Toronto Fringe Festival announces the winner of the 24-Hour Playwriting Contest

Monday, April 15, 2019

For the first time ever, we are able to announce the winner of the 24 Hour Playwriting Contest before the festival.

After a frantic and caffeine-fueled 24 hours, 83 writers submitted plays to our jury on March 24 at 5pm. After weeks of careful deliberation, during which the identity of the playwrights were hidden, the jury has landed on a winner.

And the winner is:


Ilana Lucas for Let's Talk.


Congratulations Ilana! Your show has won a fully staged reading at the Theatre Passe Muraille Mainspace during the 2019 Fringe Festival.
