Press release 8 June 2016
Acclaimed actor Daniela Nardini and comedian, writer and actor Sanjeev Kohli are to present the prestigious Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland this year it was revealed today, 8 June.
It was recently announced that Nardini, who shot to fame as Anna in the cult series This Life, would be making a welcome return to the stage later this year. She will be performing in Jumpy as part of David Grieg’s first season as artistic director of the Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh.
Renowned comedian, writer and actor Sanjeev Kohli is known to millions as Navid in Still Game, and he wowed audiences at the sell-out Still Game Live at Glasgow’s Hydro last year. “His musical number at the end of the show will live long in the memory,” says Sunday Herald and Telegraph critic Mark Brown.
“We are thrilled to have Daniela and Sanjeev with us for this year’s CATS,” say co-convenors Joyce McMillan and Mark Fisher. “They’re both tremendously talented and well-loved figures in Scotland’s creative community, they love working together (they both appeared in Annie Griffin’s 2005 film, Festival), and their presence will bring a huge extra sparkle to our ceremony, along with plenty of fun.”
A few tickets remain for the 2016 CATS at the Royal Lyceum Theatre on the afternoon of Sunday 12 June. Visit from http://lyceum.org.uk/whats-on/production/critics-awards-for-theatre-in-2016 to book.
