Theatre Newspaper Awards for 2018/2019

Share me

The editorial board of the Theatre Newspaper appointed a jury (members of the Theatre Newspaper Society, journalists, permanent and essential contributors, other approached people), who decided about the laureates in two rounds: in the first written round, each juror could nominate three works in each category, and the simple total specified the longlist (if some works received the same number of points, all those with the same number were longlisted), the second oral round decided about the winner after a discussion.
