The Edinburgh Festival’s many awards have already started to be dished out, with The Scotsman presenting Fringe First prizes to new play productions ‘Mark Thomas: Bravo Figaro!’ (Traverse – pictured), Ontroerend Goed’s ‘All That Is Wrong’ (Traverse), Pepperdine University’s ‘Why Do You Stand There In The Rain?’ (C), Vicky Araico Casas’s ‘Juana In A Million’ (Pleasance Dome) and The Group Theatre Of Helsinki’s ‘Continuous Growth’ (Pleasance Dome).

Meanwhile, broadsheet rival The Herald has handed out some of its Angel Awards, to ‘Mies Julie’ (Assembly Hall), Rob Drummond’s ‘Bullet Catch’ (Traverse), New Rope String Band (Famous Spiegeltent), Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells For Two (Assembly George Square) and Assembly Roxy’s entire Russian season. Oh, and to Mark Thomas for ‘Bravo Figaro!’, just in case the Fringe First was feeling lonely in his dressing room. The Herald also has an outstanding achievement gong called the Archangel, which went last week to ‘The People Show 121: The Detective Story’ (at Assembly George Square).

As more awards start to be unleashed, we’ll document them all online. And don’t forget our ThreeWeeks Editors’ Awards. These go to the ten things that the ThreeWeeks editors believe made this year’s Edinburgh Festival extra special. Winners can be people, plays, productions, companies, venues or even whole festivals. This year’s Editors’ Awards will be presented at theSpace @ Symposium Hall on Saturday 25 Aug at 10.30am.
