On the 11th June 2023 we attended the CATS Awards at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh. Our co-production of Castle Lennox was nominated for two Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland in the following categories:
Outstanding Performance – Emma McCaffrey
Best Ensemble – Royal Lyceum Theatre and Lung Ha Theatre Company
We were delighted and amazed when Castle Lennox won Best Ensemble! Thom Dibdin of AllEdinburgh Theatre said:
“Castle Lennox, saw possibly the most brilliantly diverse cast on any stage this year bring a complex play about a truly shameful element of Scotland’s social history to light. Lung Ha always create work which impresses but this production, which we have had to wait so many years to see, took their unique method of using an all-professional cast of people with and without learning disabilities to a new level with a production that was frequently funny as well as utterly heartbreaking.”
We would like to thank our co-producers at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, and all of the cast, support team, creative and production teams that work so hard both on stage and behind the scenes to make the production happen. It is this dedicated and thoughtful team work that makes our ensemble shine. Congratulations to all the other nominees and winners who shared the stage that night. As you can see from the photo we were very happy to be there!
