SCDA Edinburgh District 2013 One Act Festival

Congratulations to all the teams for providing such a variety of shows. The lucky audiences were treated to Farce, High Drama, Comedy and Pathos. All involved, not just the actors but their support teams and the organisers should take a bow for providing such a varied programme. Thanks also to our adjudicator Lynn Bains who had the task of selecting the three winners, and to the emergency panel (Danielle Farrow of Discover Fine Acting, John McLinden of Edinburgh Theatre Arts and Liz Hare of Citadel Theatre) who selected the best moment in theatre. Last year we displayed the participating teams on the result page, this year we have created our own gallery of the event taken at the Tech Rehearsals. Each club has their own album. Photographs were taken by Walter Hampson, our photographer. You can access the individual albums by clicking on the club name below
