NCP entered two productions for the 1961 Kenya Drama Festival

  • The Bespoke Overcoat by Wolf Mankowitz
  • The Hole by N.F. Simpson.

Rurik Ronsky was lauded by critics for his production of The Bespoke Overcoat and he was awarded the Producers Trophy.  The Drama Festival Bowl was awarded to actor Frank Price for best performance.

The Hole was produced by Anne Melland and one critic praised the ‘notable performance of sly lunacy’ by Alan Simmance.

No cast lists exist for either production.
