Orange Tree wins 3 Offies

We're thrilled to have won 3 Off West End Awards (Offies) last night.
Ken Nwosu won Best Male Performance and Ned Bennett won Best Director for An Octoroon. Ned's exhilarating production of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' extradordinary play was a sold out hit here last summer and is transferring to the National Theatre in June. Booking opens on 16 March. OT Members can book from 8 March. Click here for more information
An Octoroon was also nominated for Best New Play, Best Production and Vivian Oparah for Best Supporting Female.
Rosanna Vize won the Best Set Design Award for Clare McIntyre's Low Level Panic. Rosanna transformed the Orange Tree stage into a bathroom in Chelsea Walker's critically acclaimed production, which was the first major London revival of the play. Katherine Pearce was also a finalist for Best Female performance.
The Offies recognise work created in Off-West End venues across London, with over 190 shows assessed at around 60 venues in London. A team of assessors and super assessors see the shows and winners are decided by a panel of judges including WhatsOnStage's Daisy Bowie-Sell, The Stage's Mark Shenton, The Arts Desk's Matt Wolf, Time Out's Andrzej Lukowski and The Guardian's Lyn Gardner.
