both wor­thy win­ners for roles in two very con­trast­ing Royal Lyceum pro­duc­tions.”

Catherine Wheels added to its tally of CATS, garner­ing its sixth Best Pro­duc­tion for Chil­dren and Young Peo­ple Award for The Voice Thief.

Two lead­ing com­mis­sion­ers of new work – A Play, A Pie and A Pint and the Tra­verse – picked up the Best New Play Award for Martin McCormick’s Squash.

The Best Mu­sic and Sound Award went to Last Dream (On Earth), a Kai Fischer pro­duc­tion in as­so­ci­a­tion with Na­tional Theatre of Scot­land and Tron Theatre, Glas­gow, while Ste­wart Laing’s Un­ti­tled Projects. Slope, pro­duced in part­ner­ship with KILTR, Cit­i­zens Theatre and Tra­verse Theatre Com­pany, won the Best Tech­ni­cal Pre­sen­ta­tion Award.

CATS co-con­vener Joyce McMillan said: “This is nev­er­the­less a chal­leng­ing time for theatre in Scot­land with three of this year’s win­ning com­pa­nies fac­ing un­cer­tain fu­tures.

“As the Royal Lyceum en­ters its 50th an­niver­sary year it has to cope with a ma­jor cut in fund­ing. Slope, mean­while, may be the last Un­ti­tled Pro­duc­tions show in Scot­land for some time.

“Now we ap­pear to have lost The Arches, a trail­blaz­ing com­pany that is one of the most tan­gi­ble lega­cies of Glas­gow’s year as Euro­pean Cap­i­tal of Cul­ture”
