Melbourne Fringe Award: Best Kids Show

We are over the moon to announce that Reasons to Stay Inside received the 2015 Melbourne Fringe Award for Best Kids Show.

Reasons to Stay Inside was only a success because of the brilliant and dedicated team who worked so tirelessly on it.

As a playwright, I am always in a huge debt to director, Prue Clark for her beautiful, insightful, rigorous and generous exploration and realisation of the words I write.


Emma Annand and Oliver Coleman as Flora and Pedro won their audiences over within the first ten seconds of the show. They were engaging, open, delightful performers.

The creative and clever design team of Amelia Lever-Davidson (lighting), Yvette Turnbull (set and costumes) and Lachlan Millsom (sound) really brought this piece to life – I was blown away but what they managed to achieve in our tiny space and with our tiny budget.

Finally, stage manager Luke Preer held us altogether and kept the show running smoothly from a technical difficulty on opening to the bump-out on closing. An absolute legend.

This recognition from the Melbourne Fringe adjudicators is such a boost to the work we do. We cannot thank them enough for their support of our work.
