We’re very excited and a lot humbled.
Allan Morgan got the award for outstanding performance by an actor in a lead role, and Eileen Barrett won for outstanding performance by an actress in a lead role.
Four years ago when Eileen read Paula Vogel’s Pulitzer Prize winning play How I Learned to Drive, she couldn’t understand why it had never been done in Vancouver. Our answer was, “lets do it” and so began a wonderful experience with some of the city’s best actors, director, lighting designers and stage managers.
It’s a real tribute to the acting community in Vancouver that this kind of self-funded theatre can still be done, and done to critical acclaim.
