    I was thrilled to win BEST STAGE PLAY and was honoured to take part in the roundtable discussion as well. The host, Matt, was very friendly and I felt comfortable sharing my script with the world, as well as chatting to the other talented winners.

    Great, kind and fast communication - unfortunately the festival was online this year, but what an honour that our treatment was selected finalist (the only one next to the winner)!
