The 11th Annual Critics’ Award for Theatre in Scotland (CATS) takes place on Sunday 9 June, 2013 in the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh.
Here at the Scottish Theatre Archive we would like to extend our congratulations to all those nominated.
Alan Cumming is shortlisted for best male performance, Dominic Hill becomes the most recognised director gaining his twelfth nomination and the Royal Lyceum and National Theatre of Scotland have 8 nominations each. The full shortlist can be viewed here.
The Awards are organised annually with the first CATS awarded for the year 2002-2003 in five categories: best production, male performance, female performance, design and new play. In 2003-2004 five additional categories were added: director, technical presentation, children’s show, ensemble production and music.
The Awards are open to any professional theatre work produced in Scotland between 1 May 2012 and 30 April 2013. Around 180 new productions that opened in the year were considered, 106 of which were new plays/scripts and 36 productions created for children and young people.
The Scottish Theatre Archive is open to anyone with an interest in Scottish theatre, so if you are looking for more information on the Traverse, now in its 50th anniversary year, or simply interested in finding out more about the archive do come and see us on level 12 of the library and we will be happy to help.
