An Award-Winning Weekend for ‘Margaret’!

What a weekend! ‘Margaret’ took home two first places and one third as three festivals announced their results last night, along with awards for acting, direction and sound.

In Kiltyclogher, the production won first place, as well as Best Actress for Rachel O’Connor as Margaret, Best Actor for Shaun Byre as Dennis (and many other characters), Best Director for Monica Doherty and the Audience Award. In Enniskillen, ‘Margaret’ placed first again, with more trophies for Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Director, the Audience Award, and Best Sound by Sean O’Connor. The show came third in Castleblaney, and Rachel O’Connor won her third Best Actress award of the season.

This is a fantastic start for the production, with 26 points now on the Open League leaderboard, and five more shows to go. Next up, ‘Margaret’ makes its first appearance in Ballyshannon as part of the 71st Ballyshannon Drama Festival in the Abbey Centre on Friday night, March 15th. Book early!!
