November 22, 2010
Nick Payne has been shortlisted for the Evening Standard Charles Wintour Award for most promising playwright, which is named after the former editor of the newspaper. The awards will be announced on Sunday 28th November 2010.
Nick has been nominated for If There Is I Haven't found It Yet, which was produced at the Bush Theatre last year and Wanderlust, which marked Nick's debut at the Royal Court in September 2010.
He has been described by the Evening Standard "as a master portrayer of teenage — and adult — unease" who tackles the difficult subjects of weight, self-image and sex unflinchingly but sensitively and with "admirable frankness".
