Jennifer Lunn has been awarded the 2020 Popcorn Writing Award, which was due to be presented at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Her play, Es and Flo, explores the moving story of a lesbian couple that have secretly been in love and living together for over 30 years. The two other finalists were Matilda Ibini for Little Miss Burden and Chris Thompson for the play Burn. Camilla Whitehill also received a special mention prize for her script Daddy. Extracts from all four of the plays have been filmed by actors from their homes in lockdown. Sharon D Clarke and Celia Imrie perform a scene from Es and Flo, with Kit Harington, Tuppence Middleton and Rory Bremner among the cast for the other extracts.
