Total Theatre

Another day another shortlist, though this one from one of our favourite Edinburgh Fringe award programmes, the Total Theatre Awards, whose team are on  the constant look out for a ‘total theatre experience’.

Coming up, their 2011 shortlist, but first some words from Awards Director Pippa Bailey: “This year, we have seen a fascinating range of work. We have shows from comedy and cabaret as well as a very strong selection of international work. Due to the British Council Showcase we have had to take advice on some of the late opening shows and will be considering six such productions [in addition to those shortlisted below]”.
