TAB THEATRE AWARDS POLL: ADC DRAMA
The time has come to start the TTA poll rollin’!
We’ve taken into account a few of your suggestions and have decided to split these nominations between plays which were put on at the ADC and those put on at Corpus Playroom. We are also aware of the time constraints that effect main and late shows differently. However, for ease of voting we have decided to continue with the current format.
A massive well done to the following plays, and everyone involved in their production, all of which were nominated as the best drama the ADC has seen this whole academic year.
Having said this, we have also reconsidered the problematic label ‘best’. Please do vote on your “best-but-not-actually-the-best-more-a-subjective-view-of-a-number-of-respondents” ADC drama:
Oedipus and Antigone, by Sophocles – adaptation by Phil Willmott
Played: 7:45pm, Tue 21st October 2014 – Sat 25th October 2014
This adaptation of Sophocles’s classic was put on at the start of the year and received a killer review.
