Chicken Shop wins 'London Fringe Production of the Year' Award

Epsilon's production of Chicken Shop, which ran at the Park Theatre (Park90) in September, has won West End Frame's London Fringe Production of the Year Award. 

Speaking to West End Frame, producer Angela Bull said: "Thank you West End Frame for this recognition. The buzz you get when you find a script that you know is special is so exciting, and then when the whole team come together for the first time, cast and crew, that excitement is palpable. 

"Epsilon couldn't have wished for a better team of people to be involved in a production. This award is for all of us and for the hard work that was put in. We would also like to thank the Park Theatre for housing us through the summer and believing in our season. 

"We all had such an amazing time working on Chicken Shop and so to top everything off by winning this award truly is the cherry on top. Above all, the show would have been nothing without its audience, who not only showed immense support during the run but have now gone a step further and voted us London Fringe Production of the Year. It just doesn't get any better than that! Thank you!"

Written by Anna Jordan, Chicken Shop was directed by Jemma Gross and starred Angela Bull, Millie Reeves, Lucy Roslyn, John Last and Jesse Rutherford. London Fringe Production of the Year ran as part of the 2014 West End Frame Awards. Unlike other theatre awards, West End Frame only opens voting for one category at a time and combines musicals and plays into the same categories (where applicable).

Love Story at the Union Theatre finishes second whilst Damn Yankees at the Landor Theatre finishes third. Other runners up include Sweeney Todd (Tooting Arts Club) and In The Heights (Southwark Playhouse). Click here to view the full result. 

Thank you to everyone who has supported and voted in the 2014 West End Frame Awards! We received over 52,000 votes this year and can't wait to launch the first 2015 Award in February! We will be revealing the full 2014 winner's list, including Editor's choice awards, in due course.
