Northern Irish theatre was celebrating recently as the Lyric took four of the available 12 judges’ awards at the annual Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards in Dublin.  This was the Lyric’s biggest ever haul at the Awards, and followed the theatre’s unprecedented 12 nominations this year.  It was also the best performance on the night from any theatre on the island of Ireland.


The four awards were:


  • Best Director – Selina Cartmell for Punk Rock, by Simon Stephens
  • Best Costume Design – Mike Britton for How Many Miles to Babylon by Jennifer Johnston, adapted for stage by Alan Stanford
  • Best Set Design – Alyson Cummins for Pentecost, by Stewart Parker
  • Best Lighting Design – Ciaran Bagnall for Pentecost, by Stewart Parker


Executive Producer Jimmy Fay said, “I’m absolutely delighted that the Lyric has been recognized with these four awards.  The fact that the awards are for three different productions and cover costumes, set and lighting design as well as directing, shows how vibrant and exciting Northern Irish theatre is right now”.
