Success for Ennis Players in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, 2014

Thursday, May 22, 2014

'The Problem' directed by Joe Varden and starring Ailbhe McMahon and Aidan O'Gara  was awarded the 'Outstanding International Production' award at the 12th Biennial Liverpool International Theatre Festival, Nova Scotia, held May 14-18, 2014. The adjudicator, Annette G. Procunier, was sufficiently impressed by the Ennis Players production to see fit to award the group in spite of stiff competition from China, Egypt, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and USA.

The award was a beautiful papier mache sculpture,  by Libby Broadbent, of a fisherman in a sou'wester and bright yellow dory, with the festival's signature Jesterfish. 

Congratulations to Joe and all involved with the play - they did us proud.
