Build A Rocket, written by Scarborough-born Christopher York was seen at the Pleasance Courtyard in Edinburgh. It tells the story of a young mum from Scarborough played by Serena Manteghi.

The award could see the production heading to Australia next year.

Director Paul Rinson said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that Build a Rocket has been recognised by this international award and has the opportunity to headline at the Holden Street Theatres during the brilliant Adelaide Fringe.” Christopher York was born and brought up in Scarborough. His short plays Jimbob, Seven People, A Million Little Hands and Jesus is a Rochdale Girl have been performed at venues such as The Arcola, Southwark Playhouse and The Arts Theatre. Build a Rocket is his first full-length play.

He is a recipient of the High Tide First Commissions Award as well as being shortlisted for the Old Vic 12.

Build A Rocket returns to the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough from 31 August and 8 September 2018.
