    In the character actors thread I have posted lists of London Evening Standard Theatre award winners but I was trying to find a place for the other theatre creatives (writers and directors). I did think there was a Luvvie thread but apparently not so here we are with a list of the ten longest surviving Playwrights. With a very interesting name to start us off. BEST PLAY (Writer) 1957 Roy Lawler (b. 1921) 1967 Peter Nichols (b.1927) 1972 Tom Stoppard (b.1937) 1974 Alan Ayckborn (b.1939) 1976 Howard Brenton (b.1942) 1980 Ronald Harwood (b.1934) 1983 Athol Fugard (b.1932) 1985 David Hare (b.1947)* 1986 Christopher Hampton (b.1946) * Co-author with Howard Brenton.

    By-Election Bingo 2017-22

    The events at Westminster this week mean that an election is probably going to be held before Christmas curtailing this competition. I will start a game for 2019-2024 because the short time frame and the politically febrile atmosphere means that some interesting characters will be in parliament.

    By-Election Bingo 2017-22

    Well that was unexpected but we pick ourselves up and start again, so I present to you By-Election Bingo II (2017-22) with increased picks. Just pick 50 MPs who you think might depart their seat before 2022 and I will keep score Death = 30 points Crimianl activity - 20 points Resignation - 10 points (reducing to 5 if they defect and regain their seat) The will be 10 point bonuses for unique picks and a 25 point bonus for the by-elction that wipes out the majority of the governing party and 50 point bonus if the by-election results brings down the government. Be warned this will try our patience as you will need to invest 5 years to play (but we thought that last time). PM me with your teams from June 9 onwards. I will give you until 30 June to have them all lined up. Lets see if we can get more players this time.

    British Science Fiction Series

    This is right. Terrance is the writer who I have read most books by. This had the same impact for me as Terry Pratchett's death and this year ties with Paul Darrow for personal impact from a celebrity. His talent is simplicity and he books are so light and effortless to read he deserves to be mentioned alongside Isaac Asimov, John Wyndham, Enid Blyton and Jane Austen.

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    We are now level with 2011 the least successful recent year. Looking at this point in previous years there have been between 2 & 6 hits after this date so predictiions could be anywhere between 9 ( disappointing) and 13 (not bad). Six of the seven hits have come in a 110 day period and there is still over 110 day until the end of the year. A hit before 14th October will take us ahead of 2016.
