 Fri 17 Aug 2018 by Catherine

We are delighted that Mark Thomas has been awarded a Fringe First Award 2018 by The Scotsman for his latest show - Check Up: Our NHS @ 70, described as "a profoundly moving show by one of the nation's great storytellers, on angry and unstoppable form."

The Scotsman Fringe Firsts recognise outstanding new theatre writing premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and have been the most prestigious theatre prizes at the Edinburgh Festival since they were founded in 1973.  Mark has previously won Fringe First Awards for: Bravo Figaro (2012), Cuckooed (2014), and Red Shed (2016).

Mark will continue to perform Check Up: Our NHS @ 70 to packed houses at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh until 26th August, and then at the Arcola Theatre, London from 22nd October to 3rd November 2018.
