Festival of European Anglophone Theatrical Societies – FEATS
For many years, FEST has been participating in FEATS, the Festival of European Anglophone Theatrical Societies, the largest English-language theatre festival on the European continent. We are one of the regular hosts of this travelling one-act festival (1991, 1996, 2003) and we welcomed 12 participating groups in Bad Homburg, the festival venue, in May 2010. In 2017 FEST hosted FEATS for the fifth time, this time at the English Theatre Frankfurt.
In recent years we have received a number of FEATS awards, such as the Award for Best Original Play, ( 2012, The Devil with the Three Golden Hairs) the Blackie Award for Best Actress (2009, Death in Heels and 2006, Wasp), the ECC Centennial Cup for Second Place (2008, Eleemosynary), the Mervyn Briscoe Award for Second Place (2006, WASP), the Marcel Huhn-Bruno Boeye Trophy for Stage Management (2004, Anti! Anti!) and the Award for Best Supporting Actor (1985, Between Mouthfuls).
