This award, chosen by our Executive Director, Julianne Brienza, is given to a group or individual artist that took a risk, tried new things, was honest and had a good artistic product.
The winning production/group is awarded by being invited to participate in the following year’s Festival participation fee-free, an ad/marketing package from Capital Fringe’s sponsors and many other added benefits.
This year’s Director’s Award went to two productions: Not a Robot Theatre Co’s The Clocks and Disco Jesus Productions’s Disco Jesus and the Apostles of Funk.

Compromising situations and mistaken identities induce hilarity of operatic proportions.
Two strangers trapped in an elevator have to survive.
Comedic search for answers to science, religion, life and death.
