THE Sedgefield Players Festival of one act plays came to an end on Saturday with Richmond Amateur Drama Society coming out on top with their play 'Becoming Rose’.

In her directorial debut Kathryn Torbet brought the emotive play about coming to term with dementia to life.

Rose was played by several different actors as she grew up and with the effective use music and costumes, the audience were drawn into the life of Rose.

Festival organiser, Sue Hutchinson, said: "Yet again we have had a fabulous week of plays, it has been great to see some new plays alongside those well established pieces of drama. We have had numerous murders, spooky houses, period costumes and unexpected endings. We have enjoyed the groups and look forward to next year."
