SIR DEREK JACOBI

receives the Oxford Prize


OSC director Ron Song Destro presented veteran actor Sir Derek Jacobi with the Oxford Prize, an award given by the Oxford Shakespeare Company in honor of the actor’s outstanding  artistic achievements in bringing Shakespeare to the public.  The award was given to Mr. Jacobi  on May 16 during an OSC workshop on King Lear.


The Oxford Prize consists of an original sculpture created by New York City artist Joe Sorge, and a one-year scholarship named in honor of the award recipient given to a promising actor at the OSC school, allowing him/her at no cost to attend classes and performance workshops.
