Merchant of Venice wins Best Drama Award at NODA Regional Finals

Elizabeth Holland collected her award at the North West Regional Conference Dinner hosted at the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel, Manchester. The award is the most prestigious in its category and is a fantastic vindication for the ongoing productions of Shakespeare at the Hippodrome and Liz's vision of how to stage them.  


The award follows the tremendous showing in the District Awards where Merchant of Venice scooped 4 awards including best male lead for Richard Holley's Shylock, best female lead for Justine Sutcliffe's Portia, best play and best overall production.


Congratulations Liz, and we all look forward to a new production of Shakespeare coming to the Hippodrome stage in the Summer of 2020. More details coming soon ...
