I’ve gone and won a bloody award. In fact, I have won TWO!
What I Learned From Johnny Bevan has won a FRINGE FIRST and I also won The Stage Award for Acting Excellence – one of of only five they gave out to single actors at The Fringe. I’m cock-a-hoop.
Of course awards are all bollocks and there’s a good deal of luck involved. There are countless excellent things up here that deserve awards and don’t get them. I acknowledge my good fortune. Hopefully this will mean the show gets more bookings for the tour. What it comes down to is as many people as possible seeing the show and making a connection with it. That’s why we make art.
I also had a nice review from The Daily Record yesterday. That’s mainstream baby!
