THE legacy of the super talented Ennis based Gough family continues as Denise has just landed her second Olivier Award.

Denise was given the best supporting actress award for her role as Harper Pitt in Angels in America, a play by Tony Kushner currently showing in Broadway.

The play is a complex, often metaphorical, examination of AIDS and homosexuality in America in the 1980s.

A quarter of a century after it first appeared on stage, the play has been brought back to life by director Marianne Elliott.

The play is divided into two parts; Millennium Approaches and Perestroika.

Denise previously won an Olivier Award best actress for her role in Duncan Macmillan’s People, Places and Things.

The play tells the story of Emma’s addiction problem and her journey through rehab.
