SCDA Festival Roundup

May 10, 2006

Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off was Tryst's entry to the SCDA One-Act Festival this year.

This innovative take on the demise of Queen Mary by Liz Lochhead won first place at the Falkirk District round of the festival, earning the club the East Stirlingshire District Trophy and a ticket to the Eastern Divisional Final. Director Jim Allan also received the Barker Quaich for Best Production.

The trip to St. Serf's Hall in Edinburgh for the Divisional Final saw Tryst take home the Bob Buchannan Salver for third place, while the striking "scaffold" set won the club the Say Trophy for Stage Decor.

The club also had an entry into the SCDA Eastern Division Full Length Festival in the form of The Steamie by Tony Roper.

Playing to three packed audiences in November, the production proved to be more than a load of Galloway's mince by winning the Fraser Neal Trophy.
