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!

The nominations are for:
Best Director (for Dominic Hill), Best Music and Sound (composer Nikola Kodjabashia), Best Male Performance (for Adam Best), Best Ensemble, Best Production and Best Technical Presentation.

The announcement of the nominations brings Artistic Director Dominic Hill’s total number of CATS nominations to 13, the most of any director working in Scotland.

As well as Crime and Punishment, the nominations include several other shows that have graced the Citz stage: The Beautiful Cosmos of Ivor Cutler (Vanishing Point and National Theatre of Scotland in association with Eden Court), Dragon (Vox Motus, National Theatre of Scotland and Tianjin People's Art Theatre, China) and David Harrower’s Ciara (presented by Traverse Theatre Company and Datum Point) starring Blythe Duff.

The 2014 CATS awards are a highlight of the Scottish theatre calendar, and we are very honoured to be welcoming the cream of the Scottish theatrical crop to the Citz in June.

The awards take place on Sun 8 June at 3:30pm. Tickets are £15 each (£10 students) and are on sale now.
