The nominees for Outstanding
Achievement in Affiliate Theatre are. and the Olivier goes to Flesh and Bone
at the Soho Theatre Oh wow, we didn’t expect that.
Me and Olivia created this show in our bedroom in Dalston on our estate, with about 30
pence in our pocket, and now we’re in the Royal Albert Hall in probably the
best clobber I’ve ever had in my life to be fair! I want to thank Soho Theatre, Eastlake Productions for being amazing. I want to thank the Pleasance Theatre for
just being so supportive. I want to thank this amazing cast, we’ve got Michael
Jinks, Olivia Brady, Alessandro Babalola and Nick T Frost who couldn’t be
here unfortunately, and me as well, I was in it.
Yeah, Elliot Warren.
I want to thank my Mum and Dad
who are up there somewhere. Grandad, who’s the biggest, suavest,
East End King you’ve ever seen in your life, he might even give you Danny Dyer a
run for your money. That’s it! Oh, and Olivia’s mum as well, she’s
amazing. Thank you, cheers.
