The thriller, which starred Ben Pritchard and Culann Smyth, won the never-before-awarded joint Best Actor award.

It also won the Technical Achievement Arts Council Award for director Sean Lippett-Fall and Burgess Hill Theatre Club’s ability to make it truly ‘rain’ on stage.

A Steady Rain will be back next year at The Lantern Theatre during the Brighton Fringe Festival in May.
