2019 winners announced 6pm, 9 June 2019

“The CATS have become an important part of the cultural calendar, honouring not just individual actors but the whole sector.” PAULINE MCLEAN, BBC SCOTLAND

“It’s really powerful what the critics have done – instead of being divided from the artists, it feels like we’re all in this together, which is really important right now.” IAN BROWN, DIRECTOR

The glittering ceremony for the Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland comes to Glasgow’s Tramway this year. A highlight of the Scottish theatre calendar, CATS celebrates the actors, directors, playwrights and other theatre artists who have made the most thrilling contributions of the year.

Previous winners range from David Tennant to Blythe Duff, from Blackbird to Black Watch and from Catherine Wheels to the National Theatre of Scotland. Celebrity guest presenters have included Blythe Duff, Karen Dunbar and Clare Grogan.

With a post-show chance to mingle with the winners, CATS 2019 is a must-see event for audiences and theatre-makers alike.
