Herald Angel for Mark Thomas’ Figaro!

Mark Thomas won his second accolade of the Edinburgh Fringe over the weekend, adding a Herald Angel to his Fringe First for Bravo, Figaro!, the story of his difficult relationship with his Thatcherite father.

The Traverse received a second Angel, which recognise outstanding achievement from performers, venues and backstage crew, with Rob Drummond’s Bullet Catch.

International theatre won two of the four Angels to be awarded to the Assembly programme. Mies Julie, Baxter Theatre of Cape Town’s Strindberg adaptation set in post-Apartheid South Africa was described by the Herald’s arts editor Keith Bruce as “a show that makes the reality of the change in that nation visceral.”

A whole programme of work at Assembly Roxy was also recognised, with the Russian season directed by Anna Bogodist getting a Herald Angel. The Herald also awards an Archangel, for long service to the fringe. This week’s went to The People Show, returning to Assembly George Square with The People Show 121, The Detective Story.

Further Angels went to Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells for Two at Assembly George Square and the New Rope String Band at the Famous Spiegeltent.

A Little Devil – awarded for embodying the spirit of “the show must go on” went to Square Peg Contemporary Circus at Summerhall after an accident during warm up.
