LONDON (AP) - A play about WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning has won a drama award in Britain.
"The Radicalization of Bradley Manning" was named winner of a James Tait Black Memorial Prize on Tuesday.
The play by Tim Price focuses on Manning's teenage years in Wales, where he lived with his British mother, and his transformation into a troubled U.S. soldier who leaked troves of confidential documents to the anti-secrecy organization.
James Tait Black Memorial Prizes are Britain's oldest literary awards, and have introduced a drama category for the first time. It comes with a 10,000 pound ($15,000) check.
Manning was convicted in the U.S. last week of 20 offenses, including espionage, theft and computer fraud. The crimes carry a combined maximum prison term of 136 years.
