Tonight is the night the Brisbane theatre community has been waiting for – the announcement of the Matilda Awards for achievement in theatre during the past 12 months or, rather, during Season 2010. The Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Art is hosting the event, and it bids fair to be a great night for all. We tip that controversies will flow after the event, as they always do but, hey, what’s an award ceremony without a bit of bite. The main thing is to celebrate the achievements of the nominees and the winners and, by extension, the work of the local theatre industry which grows year by year. Good luck to everyone and to the committee of the Matildas who keep them going year after year.
… and we hope someone will be live-tweeting the event for those who can’t be there.
