Manchester’s Royal Exchange has teamed up with the Yard in London and ARC Stockton for the Hodgkiss Award 2018.

The award, last presented in 2016 to Powder Keg, will support the realisation of a production from a company based in the North.

The winning piece, which will also receive £4,000, will transfer to both ARC Stockton and the Yard following its initial run at the Royal Exchange.

The prize also comes with an artistic mentor and production support from the Royal Exchange.

Applications for this year’s award close on May 20.
