Saturday night was Gala Night, at  Hebden Bridge Little Theatre! The four winning writers saw their plays performed to a packed house, and Amelia Stephenson took the Judge’s Award for her witty and charming romantic comedy, Kelsi and Sam.

Dave Payne, Peter Bird, and Theresa Sowerby, the writers of Size Zero, Stranger and Going Country, were thanked for their contribution to a brilliant evening, and given a bottle of Prosecco apiece!

Amelia Stephenson is an actress and fledgling playwright based in South West London. She is a recent graduate of St Mary’s University in Twickenham having studied Drama and Theatre Arts for 3 years. Kelsi and Sam is her second one act play. Her previous work includes the comedy Debbie’s Dinner Party produced by TeaCup Theatre Company in 2017.
