CRITICS' AWARDS FOR THEATRE IN SCOTLAND
What makes a theatre piece eligible?
Any piece of professional theatre substantially produced in Scotland in the 12 months from May to April (the natural break in the theatre year) is eligible.
Any individual production may win in more than one category.
Awards are given to individual productions, not to a body of work with the exception of the CATS Whiskers, an occasional award given in recognition of an outstanding contribution to theatre in Scotland.
The categories are -
Best Male Performance
Best Female Performance
Best Music and Sound
Best Technical Presentation
Best Show for Children and Young People
Best New Play
