Woodeson up for gong for Northampton production
Woodeson played Willy Loman in Royal and Derngate’s touring production of Arthur Miller’s masterpiece. He took over from Tim Pigott-Smith who died just before the play was due to start in Northampton.
Award winners will be announced at a ceremony in London’s Guildhall on Sunday 15 October.
Royal and Derngate is also eligible for the Clothworkers’ Foundation award of up to £150,000 which is presented each year to a regional producing theatre in England. The 2017 award will go to a theatre from either the East or the West Midlands.
