A THEATRE director has won an industry award for her contribution to the Portuguese community in the UK.

Alice de Sousa, artistic director of the Greenwich Playhouse and Galleon Theatre Company, was handed the award by association Jornal As Noticias in Regent's College, London last month.

The ceremony, which included guest from the Portuguese Consul and businesses as well as the Ambassador, celebrated 12 individuals and organisations that contributed to the Portuguese community living in Britain.

Ms de Sousa was recognised for her productions that have introduced London audiences to Portuguese literature and original works including The Pilgrim by Almeida Garrett, Cousin Basili and The Maias by Eca de Queirós and The Heiress of the Cane Fields by Julio Dinis.

She has also written and produced her own original stage plays, Inês de Castro and most recently Aristides - the Outcast Hero.

The actress, who has played leading roles in some 30 plays, is also chief executive of Galleon Film Company and is currently working on an adaptation of The Duchess of Malfi.
