Critics' Awards for Theatre in Scotland 2012
Along with my colleagues and friends from The Salon Project, I attended the Critics' Awards for Theatre in Scotland (CATS) two weekends ago at The Tron Theatre. I was struck most of all by the occasion's good nature: free of the arrogance and haughtiness that marks, say, The Scottish Fashion Awards, the CATS seemed to me to be a big love-in. Although there was disappointment that The Salon Project picked up neither of the awards for which it was nominated, the CATS seemed less about competition than about celebrating the many achievements of the Scottish theatre industry as a whole. It was also a fine excuse, if another was needed, to drink, drink, and drink.
My work in theatre is collected in this set.
