This London's  7th SOLO FESTIVAL of One Man Shows created with the purpose of giving gifted performers a platform to demonstrate their talent.

There were so many excellent original and thrilling performances, it was very difficult to decide on the winners 

For example Davina Cole and Heather Lai were all superb. Geoff Cotten's award winning slick show was one of the funniest acts I have ever seen. CHRIS GARNER A unique and brilliant portrayal of Macbeth with a high scaffolding tower as the set.

To these official winners I would like to add one more of my own.

The Lucien Morgan Award for the most romantic story goes to Rosina Piovani's General Darcey and Girl. She gave a thrilling performance as a young Uruguayan girl talking to an old British General with lines like "who said that emptiness is empty?" Dancing to Tango music and leaping around in her underwear....Now I did enjoy that!
