Theatre Centre’s relationship with Dorothy L Sayers goes back to the very start. In 1953, Brian Way – Theatre Centre’s founder – wished to produce an adaptation of Ms Sayers’ radio series The Man Born To Be King as the first production by the fledgling company. The production was so well received by Ms Sayers that she joined the management committee and financed the company for its first year.
Now, some sixty or so years later, the Dorothy L Sayers Society annually supports young performers with the Dorothy L Sayers Award – given to actors whose first job out of drama school is in a Theatre Centre production.
This year’s winner is Imogen Rose, who appeared in last year’s production of What The Thunder Said. Imogen accepted the award from Ms Seona Ford, the Dorothy L Sayers Society chair, following a performance of The Muddy Choir at Redbridge Drama Centre.
We thank the Dorothy L Sayers Society for their continuing support of young actors and Theatre Centre’s work, and wish Imogen all the best in her career!
