Sarah's not the only one of our team who has been nominated for the h.Club 100. Sean Foley, director of A Mad World My Masters and Dennis Kelly , writer of Matilda The Musical have also been nominated in the Theatre and Performance category .
What was Midsummer Night's Dreaming?
Last summer we teamed up with Google+ to perform an artistic feat: a real-time production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, live both on-stage and online.
It included a host of new characters, an all-night performance and a dancing bear.
We called it Midsummer Night's Dreaming, and you can re-live it on the website.
Sarah says: 'We loved running this, and were not alone in enjoying the antics of the our flying fairies and gif hounds: #dream40 trended the whole weekend on Google+, received over 1000+ Tweets. The likes of Mashable, Wired UK, The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Economist, NYT and the BBC radio covered it too.'
As well as Sarah's nomination for the h.Club 100, the production itself is nominated for a Lovie audience Award for Social Innovation. The results are announced on 15 October 2013 - there's just time to vote for us if you do it today.
