Farnborough Hill School wins Page to Stage competition

18th August 2010

National Drama and Random House Children's Books have announced the winners of the Page to Stage drama competition.

The challenge asked the UK's secondary schools to dramatise and film the opening scenes of Theresa Breslin's Prisoner of the Inquisition.

Farnborough Hill School in Hampshire was named the overall winner of the competition and will receive GBP 1,000 of books, as well as the opportunity to host an appearance by the author.

Praising the winning entry, the judging panel said: 'Thoughtful scene setting, well-crafted scripting and smooth linkage combined with intelligent acting and understanding of the story showed real mastery of the form.'

Coatbridge High School in North Lanarkshire and Hampshire's Lord Wandsworth College were named joint runners-up, while Everest Community College in Basingstoke came in third.

Breslin commented: 'It's amazing to see my characters brought to life by young people.'

Other works written by the author include Across the Roman Wall, Prisoner in Alcatraz, The Nostradamus Prophecy and The Divided City, while Prisoner of the Inquisition is longlisted for the Guardian children's fiction prize.
