Short listed: Lanark - A Life in Three Acts

Edinburgh International Festival and Citizens Theatre coproduction, Lanark - A Life in Three Acts has been short listed for the Critics' Awards for Theatre in Scotland (CATS) 2016. The production, which recieved rave reviews at the International Festival in 2015, has been nominated in the categories of Best Male Performance, Best Design, Best Music and Sound, Best Technical Presentation and Best Production. 

Lanark, a theatrical re-imagining of Alasdair Gray’s novel of the same name, tells the story of a young man with no memory of his past, arriving alone in a Glagow-like dystopian city. The play takes us from the Dragon Chambers to the Cathedral of Unthank, from post-war Glasgow School of Art to the sinister underground Institute, from the heavenly city of Provan to the hellish Elite Café, combining science fiction, realism, fantasy, and playful storytelling.

CATS winners will be announced at the Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh, on Sunday 12 June.
