Our Award Winners
Every year we scout out the best Fringe shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to bring home and be the headliner of our own HST Adelaide Fringe! The award is the only of it's kind that allows a company from Edinburgh to tour their show to the Adelaide Fringe and has brought us some fantastic acts over the years. From Henry Naylor to Molly Taylor and everyone in between the award has uncovered some of HST's favourite artists.
In 2021 the award looked a little different with the show being screened in our HST on Screen program during the 2022 Adelaide Fringe! With the Ed Fringe back in full swing, we are excited to see the winning show come to life, in person, on our Holden Street Stage in 2023.

Congratulations to our 2021 winners, the East Van to Edinburgh program!
The program includes four recorded shows that will be played in our new lounge cinema as part of the On Screen Program. The shows are 1 Hour Photo, Inside/Out: A Prison Memior, do you want what I have got? A Craigslist Cantata and The Darlings: A Provocative Evening of Drag from Vancouver.
Our award invites a production from the Edinburgh Fringe to perform at Holden Street Theatres in Adelaide, South Australia, as the headline show of the following year of our Adelaide Fringe program.
Holden Street Theatres is known as “The Home of Theatre” with a strong loyal following and a reputation for presenting great work and looking after its artists and patrons.
Productions are shortlisted by the Artistic Director of Holden Street Theatres, Martha Lott, along with a panel of international producers and arts practitioners. The work is selected on artistic merit, production values, touring possibilities, venue compatibility and marketing viability. We see work from all genres and venues across Edinburgh, and accept applications and information from individuals, producers, and venues in advance.
