An honour for Anna!

We'd like to offer huge congratulations to Anna Stapleton, the Citizens Theatre's Administrative Director, who last night was inducted as a Fellow of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.

This prestigious honour places Anna with an illustrious group of Fellows. Four Fellows were inducted in the ceremony that also included the conferment of degrees. The new Fellows were Anna, Richard Findlay, Andrew Hamnett and John Pitcathley.

Fellowship's are awarded in recognition of contribution to the RSAMD, and beyond that, to the cultural and educational environment of Glasgow and Scotland.

Anna has over 30 years experience of working in the arts, from her early days working as a Company Stage Manager and General Manager, to her years with the Scottish Arts Council and Arts Council of England. She has worked at the Citizens Theatre for almost 10 years.

Some Citizens staff joined Anna for the evening (...and thought they should apologise for eating so many canapes!).

A wonderful evening was had by all, so a big thanks to the RSAMD.

"The personal and the political"

Starting tonight in the Circle Studio A Moment's Peace Theatre Company present The Chronicles of Irania (not one person thought!). This one woman show was a festival hit, delving into the life of Khadija, a middle-aged Iranian woman with more than a few tales to tell.

Neil Cooper met the company recently and wrote this article for the Herald.
