  • Old Vic New Voices awards start up May 13, 2013

    On the 15th April 2013, Old Vic New Voices awarded a Start-Up award to support Happy Never After.
    These are the first ever OVNV Start-Ups and they are designed to kick start creativity. Happy Never After began its development through OVNV in 2011 and we are pleased to have their continual support on this production.

    The Old Vic is one of the world’s best-known theatres – a brand and a building that carries a history and reputation that we continue to nurture and grow under the artistic directorship of Kevin Spacey. As important to us as what goes on stage is Old Vic New Voices, which nurtures talent, inspires young people and opens up our theatre.

    Director of Old Vic New Voices, Steve Winter has said,

    “I am delighted to support Happy Never After with an OVNV START-UP award. Having seen the original production in London I feel sure it will do equally as well in Edinburgh and am proud that the producer, actors, director and writer are part of the Old Vic New Voices family.”
