The 2019 New Diorama and Underbelly ‘Untapped’ Award finalists include Kopfkino’s Grand Scheme of Things and Wildcard’s 17. Kopfkino Theatre is led by OSD One Year Course graduate Nic McQuillan and Flora Marston. The Grand Scheme of Things was part of a scratch night at The Yard in December 2017, and was subsequently developed as part of Litmus Festival at Pleasance in September 2018.
Wildcard was founded by two OSD Three Year Course graduates, Joseph Dawson and James Meteyard. 17 has just been presented at the 2019 Vault Festival, starring another OSD grad, Annice Boparai, where it received enthusiastic reviews:
