Sir Kenneth Branagh - Kenneth Branagh's Macbeth A Triple Winner At Manchester Theatre Awards

Sir Kenneth Branagh has won another stage award for his acclaimed production of William Shakespeare's Macbeth.

The star, who staged the tragedy in an old church in Manchester, England, has claimed the Best Actor prize for his royal role at the Manchester Theatre Awards.

The play was named Best production, while Branagh's sidekick Ray Fearon picked up a Best Supporting Actor trophy at a ceremony on Friday (07Mar14).

Branagh did not attend the show but sent a personal message, which read: "In Manchester, from the moment we pelted our dear patrons with rain, mud and blood, we felt their complete (and literal) immersion in the experience.

"They were not only good sports, they were the other half of the evening, and for their concentration, their support, and their reluctance to send us laundry bills, I thank them most sincerely."
