Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland 2022

This performance has taken place in the past

A highlight of the Scottish theatre calendar, back in person for 2022, CATS celebrates the actors, directors, playwrights and other theatre artists who have made the most thrilling contributions of the year.  

The 2022 CATS ceremony will be particularly special, not only celebrating the brilliant nominees but also acknowledging the remarkable way in which Scotland’s theatre artists have come back from the many challenges of the Covid pandemic.

‘Over 100 new productions have been staged since last summer, as well as many revivals, illustrating the deep-felt desire across the sector to return to live performance as soon as it became possible. The calibre of theatre which continues to be created across Scotland is reflected in the breadth and diversity of the production and companies on this year’s shortlists’. Joyce McMillan, CATS co-convener.

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.
