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

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

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