British All Winners Festival – Final Comments

So that’s the festival done and dusted.  Unfortunately no awards for the Isle of Man representatives though Andrew Halstein did get a nomination for his excellent portrayal of “Denis” the Servant in R.I.P Mr Shakespeare, as did Service Players for their “Naturalistic treatment of emotional content” in Is This Seat Taken?

Thankfully Bejou Productions & University Players, Hamburg, our adopted cousins, were rewarded with Runner-Up Play in the Full Length Section (Bejou) and the Full-Length Audience Appreciation, Backstage Award and Adjudicator’s Award going to University Players.

We would also like to give a special mention and offer congratulations to Nicholas Marsh for his new play “A Frank Exchange”.  Maybe we’ll see this as a One-Act Winner in future years.

So very well done everyone.

The whole team at The Lamproom Theatre did a great job all week in making us all so welcome and creating a lovely friendly atmosphere, though they, like us seem to suffer from low audience figures for ordinary drama.  Let’s hope the quality we all witnessed can help to about turn this audience involvement in future years.

Bring on 2018!
