April 2009

Dear all,
First of all thanks to all the wonderful directors and actors (those who were cast and those who weren’t!) who contributed to creating a wonderful night of Crash Test Drama Sydney last night!
In all we had ten plays produced with both our judges commenting on the overall exceptional standard of acting on the night. It’s nights like these that you realise how many amazingly talented people there are in the Sydney acting scene.
But to the winners:
