Pilot Theatre has been nominated for two UK Theatre Awards, with the winners to be announced on 27th October at London’s Guildhall.

The first nomination comes in the ‘Best Show for Children and Young People’ category for their production of Malorie Blackman’s award-winning novel, Noughts & Crosses.

The York-based theatre company has also been nominated in the category of ‘Excellence in Touring’, alongside Northern Ballet and the National Theatre of Scotland.

“We are delighted to be nominated twice at the UK Theatre Awards,” says Amanda Smith, Executive Producer and Joint Chief Executive of Pilot Theatre.

“The audience for Noughts & Crosses were young people, so it is great to see
the production and the tour celebrated in this way.”

The UK Theatre Awards – the biggest of their kind outside London – are the only nationwide Awards to honour outstanding achievement in regional theatre throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
