One of the Fringe’s most treasured prizes is broadening its remit this year. Ten years ago the Australian director and actress Martha Lott launched the Holden Street Theatres Award, which takes a chosen production from Edinburgh to its Antipodean younger sibling, the Adelaide Fringe, running for a month from mid-February.

Now in it's tenth year the award has won toured sell out hits, gathered rave reviews and created life-long friendships and partnerships that continue to create great work. We look forward to our next great adventure.
