A new and award winning Amateur Dramatics Group for the communities in the Medway Valley
Medway Little Theatre's Duncan Rand One Act Play Festival entries
Last year, our entry into the festival, and our first production ever was "The Waiting Room". Not only did the play come second over all in the festival, missing out on first place by only two points, but we also won awards for Best Juvenile in an adult production (Matt George), Best Comedy and the Adjudicator's award, the Jo Stone Trophy, which was given to us for Best Direction (Neil Vinall). We were also nominated for Best Actress (Liz Hanson), Best Original Script and Best Ensemble Cast. We believe that we gained more awards and nominations than any other single production.
This year, it is our intention of entering two plays into the festival; "Passing Shadows" by Neil Vinall and "Unfinished Letters" by Frederic Dhombres
Audition/workshop evenings took place on the 26th and 28th April but we are still looking for someone to play the part of The Scientist in "Passing Shadows". The part of "The Opera Singer needs to be confirmed. If anyone is interested in this role, we will still be happy to audition.
