Augmented wins Suitcase Prize at Pulse18!


Wow! We won the Suitcase Prize!  Suitcase day happens every year at Pulse Festival at the New Wolesy Theatre in Ipswich.

Sophie is awarded her prize by James McDermott. The prize is a suitcase and a giant cheque.
James McDermott hands over the suitcase. Sophie must keep it for one year and then return to Pulse to perform her show.

“The Suitcase Prize challenges theatre makers to think in an environmentally and economically sustainable way. The 10 participants compete to win £1,000 by presenting a 20 minute scratch which can be transported on public transport! Yes, literally in a suitcase!”


Sophie holds giant cheque for 1000 pounds.

Thank you to everyone who has attended our sharings and contributed feedback. It feels like the sound and movement ideas are coming together well so far. Thanks to producer, Kendall, for operating sound! Thank you to Unlimited for funding the writing R&D and to Ovalhouse and Poplar Union. Now I will write a new draft of the script.

The full length scratch performances are on 12-14 July at Ovalhouse. Tickets are a fiver in advance and eight quid on the door. The performances are palantype captioned and in the downstairs accessible theatre.
