The group is hoping to complete a hat-trick of successes at the drama festival later in the month.

Last year it took the best play award for its production of Tom Stoppard's A Separate Peace, as well as the best cameo award and audience appreciation award.

In 2005, it took the audience appreciation award for Nick Warburton's The Bread Pudding.
