Gina Wilkinson Prize for an Emerging Female Director

Gina Wilkinson was a prolific actor/playwright and a stage director in constant demand.  Her sudden passing was a great loss to her family, friends and the theatre community who cherished her joy, energy, and great lust for life. 

In memory of Gina’s great talent and in celebration of her life, the Gina Wilkinson Prize for an Emerging Female Director has been established. An award is to be given annually, offering financial support to the next generation of female theatre directors.
