Sports Day memories

We asked some of the people involved in Sports Day to share some of their sporting opinions with us. School sports teachers seem to have a lot to answer for - both good and bad!

Crime and Punishment most nominated show at 2014 Critics’ Award for Theatre in Scotland

We are so pleased to be hosting the 2014 Critics’ Award for Theatre in Scotland (CATS), which are taking place in the Citizens Theatre’s beautiful Main House on 8 June.

We are even more delighted that last year’s production of Crime and Punishment, produced in partnership with the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, and Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse, has received 6 nominations. This makes Crime and Punishment the most nominated production in this year’s Awards!
