Award for city theatre director
A CITY theatre director has won a prestigious stage award.
Nick Stimson was honoured for co-writing A Winter's Tale, a musical based on the Shakespeare play.
The new work won an Off West End Award in the Best New Musical category.
The prizes – nicknamed the Offies – celebrate the "excellence, innovation and ingenuity" of independent theatres in London. Mr Stimson wrote the libretto – the text – for the musical, working with distinguished composer Howard Goodall.
