Stage Beyond wins an Achates Philanthropy Prize UK

Stage Beyond is an award-winning theatre company for adults with learning disabilities, offering professional arts training in a variety of disciplines. Their workshops have been running online throughout the pandemic. A tour of their latest play, ‘Hamlet, Prince of Derry’ had to be cancelled; however, RTE Radio commissioned the play for their Drama On One series, which aired in July to rave reviews by the Sunday Times and Belfast Telegraph, among others.

Stage Beyond have just heard that they have won the Achates Philanthropy prize UK, an award given to those producing outstanding theatre. The company is now concentrating on their Christmas show piece, ‘Christmas On The Stage Beyond Tree’, which will be a five-part performance that viewers can watch online. Follow Stage Beyond online via Facebook and Instagram for further information and links for all of the family to watch along.
