Teatro Mundo 8 May 2014

Me and those pesky CATS

The most difficult thing about this time of year is probably that this is the time when they announce the CATS awards. CATS stands for Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland and they’re a really well intentioned attempt to raise the profile and celebrate the achievements of Scottish Theatre. It pains me that as a theatre community we haven’t been able to come up with any better than an imitation of London West End’s theatre awards, and I really do think we could do with something better, if I just knew what it was...
