The theatre company who produce dramas exploring human rights and social issues said they were thrilled to be nominated.

Awards organiser, managing director Mubarak Chati, said: “”We’ve had hundreds of nominations, and they’ve come from right across the region: Manchester to Merseyside, Cumbria to Cheshire.

“It’s astonishing to witness the effort and ingenuity of so many individuals and organisations because so much commendable work has clearly been done.

“In compiling the shortlist, the Nominations Panel certainly had an unenviable task and for Certain Curtain Theatre Company to have secured a place in the final is an achievement of which it should be very proud.”
