Montreal English Theatre Awards Inaugurated

The inaugural Montreal English Theatre Awards (METAs) were held a week ago, on Monday, October 21st, at the Rialto Theatre. The METAs are Montreal’s first peer-juried theatre awards for English theatre. The ceremony, awarding outstanding achievement in acting, design, and production, was hosted by Montreal actors Holly Gauthier-Frankel and Marcel Jeannin with music by musician Nick Carpenter.

Talonbooks, which publishes translations and drama, watched with particular interest the category of Outstanding New Translation. The nominees were

  • Maureen Labonté for August, An Afternoon in the Country by Jean Marc Dalpe, produced by the Centaur Theatre Company;
  • Andreas Apergis and Joseph Shragge for The Bacchae, produced by Scapegoat Carnivale; and
  • Nadine Desrochers for The Medea Effect, produced by Talisman Theatre.

The award went to Nadine Desrochers. Congratulations!
