Director Ola Ince has won the theatre and performance category at the Hospital Club’s h100 Awards 2018.

The awards from the London-based private members’ club celebrate talent across various sectors of the creative industries.

Actor Lucie Shorthouse, who is currently performing in musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie in the West End, won the rising star award.

Other winners included actor, writer and director Francis Lee in the film category and actor Eve Myles in the broadcast category.

The evening was hosted by comedian Stuart Goldsmith, and featured a keynote speech from playwright James Graham.

Ince, who won the Genesis Future Director Award in 2016, told The Stage: “I’m feeling really blessed, very loved and supported and I’m really happy that people voted for me. It’s great to be acknowledged – it feels like my hard work has been recognised.”

Ince’s credits include Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 at the Gate Theatre, which ran earlier this year.

Other nominees in the theatre category included actor and director Lia Williams, designer Chloe Lamford and producer Eleanor Lloyd.

The awards took place at the Hospital Club Studio in London on September 10.
