Forty years after he first started packing out New Zealand with his plays, Roger Hall has received a Prime Minister's Award for Literary Achievement and he's the first playwright to do so. Roger's hits include Glide Time and Middle Age Spread and he's credited with saving numerous New Zealand theatres around the country over the years. Also winning a literary award this year is North Canterbury poet Bernadette Hall who's also a playwright but is best known as a poet with many poetry collections to her name.
