Stage One Scoop Top Awards in One Act Play Festival!
Stage One won four awards in MADF One Act Play Festival:
Best Youth Play, Best Play Overall, Best Under 21 performance
& Best Supporting Actresshe production of In Need of Care provided the audience with every aspect of quality live performance. Engaging direction, quality timing and some first class performances made this show a clear winner. Often in productions (both professional and amateur) there is a clear 'weak link' to the cast. Not so here. Every one of the actors conducted themselves skillfully and with discipline. A fine piece of theatre in every way."
