Feature: 58TH 2023 FLEUR DU CAP AWARDS at Oude Libertas Amphitheatre

The stars and beautiful people came out to play at the 58th FLEUR DU CAP AWARDS last Sunday night - 26 March 2023. It was such a treat to be surrounded by so many great theatre makers and talented human beings, as well as to honour those who have done incredible things in the last year.

What was most exciting, for me and I think for everyone there, was just how much theatre had happened in the last year. At the 2022 ceremony, we saw the devastating impact that the pandemic had on our sector in the far smaller number of eligible shows. This year, we were back up to 71 productions being considered for the awards in the space of a year - pre-pandemic levels. You just cannot keep theatre makers down!
