Theatre Critics of Wales Awards 2013
Through my occasional reviews for the British Theatre Guide, I was fortunate enough to be invited to play a small role in the decision-making process in respect of the inaugural Theatre Critics of Wales Awards; thus I was invited to the ceremony on January 26th, at the Sherman Cymru. A pretty starry affair, in Welsh terms, hosted by the BBC’s Nicola Heywood-Thomas, with many familiar faces in attendance. The awards themselves were largely dominated by National Theatre Wales, but beyond this provided a useful insight into the breadth of activity happening in any given year, and the depth of talent we have at our disposal, across different specialisms. And it all wrapped up in less than two hours, so I could get back and watch “Borgen” before retiring. Delightful.
