Well how very exciting that all was – hope you were able to work the red button on the Beeb and enjoyed the show. A fantastic evening for the RSC indeed – Congratulations to all those involved: –
‘RSC’s stage version of children’s novel takes record seven prizes at UK theatre’s most prestigious awards ceremony
The Royal Shakespeare Company show, based on Roald Dahl‘s 1988 children’s novel, had been nominated in 10 categories and was easily the biggest winner on the night.
Matilda’s success meant the RSC beat its own record for the number of Oliviers won by one show, previously held by Nicholas Nickleby, which won six in 1980.’
