Jackie Hagan wins Creative Future Literary Award

Big congratulations from all of us here at the NRTF to Jackie Hagan, who has won a Creative Future Literary Award for her show Some People Have Too Many Legs!

The Creative Future Literary Awards is a national literary competition and high profile awards ceremony which celebrates talented writers who lack opportunities due to mental health issues, disability, health or social circumstance. Winners are selected by a panel of industry experts and prizes include £1000 of cash prizes & professional writing development support.

Colin Hambrook, of Disability Arts Online, reviewing the awards ceremony said: “I was struck by the affectionate portrait of Jackie Hagan’s ‘Edna’: a character whose impossible spirit cannot fail to invigorate. Edna features in Jackie’s one-woman show ‘Some People Have Too Many Legs’, which is a must-see when it tours again this winter.”

Some People Have Too Many Legs was developed as part of the partnership between Contact Theatre and the NRTF and Jackie is back on the road again this Autumn from 5th October. Full tour dates can be found here.
