Sir Alan Ayckbourn, one of the UK’s greatest living playwrights [and Guild member], is to be awarded a special Tony award in June to recognise his life’s work.
The Special Tony Awards for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre will be presented to Alan Ayckbourn at the ceremony in New York on 13 June. Ayckbourn, who is 71, has written 74 full-length plays, and saw a revival of his play The Norman Conquests win a Tony Award last year. His 1975 play Bedroom Farce is currently playing at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London.
