Flurry of awards presented alongside last batch of Fringe Firsts

By | Published on Friday 23 August 2013


There was a flurry of award giving at Assembly Hall this morning as The Scotsman handed out the final batch of Fringe First awards to the producers of the new plays its critics most rated; because once the Fringe Firsts had been dished out, five other awards were then presented.

The final batch of Fringe Firsts went to…

• Untied Artists for ‘For Their Own Good’ at Summerhall.

• Undeb Theatre for ‘Gardening: For The Unfulfilled and Alienated’ at Pleasance Courtyard.

• Bryony Kimmings for ‘Credible Likeable Superstar Rolemodel’ at Pleasance Dome (pictured).

• CYOD Ltd for ‘Choose Your Own Documentary’ at Gilded Balloon Teviot.

• Harold Clurman Lab Theater for ‘Mercy Killers’ at Assembly Hall.

• Big In Belgium, Richard Jordan Productions, Drum Plymouth and Theater-aan-Zee for ‘Freeze!’ at Summerhall.

And the other gongs presented in this particular awards splurge were as follows…

• The Carol Tambor Best Of Edinburgh Award, which considers every show that receives a four or five star review from The Scotsman, and invites one to perform all-expenses-paid in New York, went to Actors Touring Company, Young Vic Theatre, Brageteatret and Schauspielhaus Wein for ‘The Events’ at the Traverse Theatre.

• The Holden Street Theatre Award, which invites one Edinburgh production to perform at the Adelaide Fringe, went to Snuff Box Theatre and Richard Jordan Productions for Bitch Boxer at Pleasance Courtyard.

• The Brighton Fringe Emerging Talent Award, which invites one production to perform at the Brighton Fringe, went to Gagglebabble and Theatr Lolo for The Bloody Ballad at Assembly Roxy.

• The Arches Brick Award, which invites productions to perform at The Arches in Glasgow, went to Bryony Kimmings for ‘Credible Likeable Superstar Rolemodel’ at Pleasance Dome and Sh!t Theatre for ‘JSA (Job Seekers Anonymous)’ at Gryphon Venues at the Point Hotel.

• And finally the sightly random Jack Tinker Spirit Of The Fringe Award went to Northern Stage for their ‘The Bloody Great Border Ballad Project’.

Well done one and all.
