Front of House Writer Shortlisted for Prize

Michael Ross, writer of Front of House Theatre’s Nothing But Mammals and Preoccupied, is one of 10 writers shortlisted for the inaugural Liverpool Hope Playwriting Prize.

His shortlisted play, Happy to Help, tells the story of Tony Manning, UK managing director of a giant multinational supermarket chain who decides to work undercover for a week at one of his stores to see what life is really like on the shop floor, and ends up getting a far more authentic experience than he’d have ever wished for.

The winner is announced on Wednesday 1st April.

Good luck, Michael!
