A great idea here from the Lyric, Hammersmith.

Five young writers will compete against five professional writers for the title of audience favourite.

But there's a twist: the voting audience won't know the author of each play when they cast their vote.

The play with the most votes, wins. 

Will it be the pro team or the young team?

Here are the authors ...

Young Writers:

Conor Carroll, Fintan Dineen, Saffia Kavas, Sarah Milton and Tom Taborn.

Professional Writers:

Arinze Kene, Isley Lynn, Luke Barnes, Phoebe Eclair-Powell and Somalia Seaton.

Good luck to them all!
