Julia Stevens took home the Best Actress trophy, a well-deserved award which adjudicator Mike Kaiser gave for Jules’ controlled and moving performance as Dawn in The Universal Language.
The team also won the Mary Fitzhugh Award for Comedy for a performance which Mike Kaiser described as being “one of the funniest I have ever seen”. This was definitely a proud moment for all concerned as Mary was such a stalwart member of The Players, as well as being a leading light of the Spelthorne festival and the Riverside Arts Centre.
Alongside the wins were nominations for Graham Collier as Best Actor, and for the whole team in the Technical Merit award.
