Recognising Excellence

The Critics Awards for theatre in Scotland has been established with a singular purpose -- to recognise and celebrate the excellence of the Scottish theatre industry. We believe that the key to this recognition is through a robust and detailed judging process. Our criteria are designed to cover all relevant aspects of a theatrical performance, with a focus on the overall quality of the production. We believe that this process is critical in recognizing the talents and hard work of Scotland's theatrical community. Therefore, we strive to follow our criteria as closely as possible, to identify and reward only the best performances.
