The Stage Awards - video

A new video has just been posted of The Stage Awards for Acting Excellence. If you scroll to 6 mins 25 seconds, you get to the start of the Best Ensemble Award which went to The Monster in the Hall.



"they told the story with glorious panache"

Unfortunately our cast were on stage at the time of the awards' ceremony so writer David Greig accepted on their behalf. This film features the award, David's acceptance and a couple of interviews.

The cast who were unaware of their win, were actually completing their very last performance of the whole festival. This final audience had a treat as David Greig (who winged his way to the Traverse) stepped on stage during the applause to let everyone know about their win.

I wasn't there, but have been told by a few folk that the audience offered a rapturous response. What an awesome way to close another stunning festival run!

You can see clips of the show and audience response on YouTube.
