FIVE NOMINATIONS FOR TOUCH theatre in CORNWALL DRAMA ASSOCIATIONS’ THEATRE FESTIVAL FOR 2019-21
TOUCH theatre’s production of Abi Morgan’s Splendour has won five nominations from the CDA in its Theatre Festival for 2019-21. We are nominated for Best Ensemble, which recognises the strongly cohesive work of our four actors. Two of those performers, Oriel Bennett and Steph Randlesome, have also been nominated as Best Actress in a drama (non-musical play). Director, Kath Archer, has also been recognised with a nomination for Best Director, and the whole performance is nominated for Best Play.
If we can return to some sort of normality in the performing arts, the best plays and musicals performed by new productions in the months from Spring to August 2021 will join a consolidated list of nominations, and the actual awards will be announced in November 2021.
We profoundly hope that Donald Trump’s legal team will not object to the CDA’s voting system, counting methods and calendar management, and that we can all celebrate the joy that powerful drama can bring to the soul.
