SBC Theatre wins Best English Language Production Award at 10th Annual Soiree Des Masques
February 3, 2004

Montreal – The SBC Theatre took home the Best English Language Production award for last season’s presentation of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, at the 10th annual Soiree Des Masques held this past Sunday at the Monument National Theatre.

This is the third straight year that the SBC Theatre has received this prestigious award, having won previously for David French's Salt Water Moon and for Harold Pinter's Betrayal (co-produced with Soulpepper theatre company.)

The Soiree Des Masques is produced annually by L'Academie Quebecoise du Theatre as a celebration of the best in Quebec theatre.

Bryna Wasserman, Artistic Director, accepted the award on behalf of the Theatre. "Stage actors and crews are underpaid and overworked,” Ms. Wasserman told Matt Radz of the Montreal Gazette. “…This tells us that we must be on the right track…. Winning reaffirms what we are trying to do."

Indeed, in the midst of the celebration, Wasserman and company are gearing up for the second half of the 2003-04 Hot Ticket season which begins with Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, co-produced with Manitoba Theatre Centre, previewing at the SBC Theatre on February 16.
