TOUCH theatre receives EIGHT nominations from

Cornwall Drama Association

The Welkin

In its annual review of theatre on Cornwall, the CDA has recognised the qualities in the work of TOUCH theatre. Our joint production with Gweek Players of Lucy Kirkwood’s ‘The Welkin’ has been nominated for 4 awards. The cast has a nomination for Best Ensemble Performance; Gemma Wright’s coruscating interpretation of Sally Poppy has been put forward for the Eileen Stratton award for Best Actress. Kath Archer is on the list for the Fred Shepherd trophy for Best Director and the team effort has been recognised in a nomination for Best Play.

Girls & Boys

But the recognition does not end there. our interpretation of Dennis Kelly’s ‘Girls and Boys’ has received a similar list of nominations: one for Mike Meer’s set, another Eileen Stratton Best Actress for Emma McGee’s (née Phillips) mesmerising interpretation of ‘the woman’, a role originally played by Carey Mulligan. Girls and Boys also won a nomination for Kath Archer as best director, and again, for the whole team in another Best Play nomination. We are absolutely delighted the qualities that TOUCH can bring to the stage have been recognised.
