Firstly, we would like to congratulate Kyrelle Lammy for his Black British Theatre Awards nomination and award!
Kyrelle starred in our Nov 2022 / Jan 2023 Rep Original production of Nativity The Musical and has been nominated for Best Supporting Male Actor in a Musical for his role of TJ/Angel Gabriel.
Kyrelle has also won the Black British Theatre Award‘s Disability Champion Award! We are thrilled his disability work and theatrical talent has been recognised by such a prestigious organisation, especially at such a young age.
The Black British Theatre Awards are the UK’s only awards that celebrates the excellence and influence of black performers and creatives in the theatre industry.
Nativity! The Musical
We are thrilled to announce that THREE of the stars from our 2023 spring-summer season have received nominations in the UK Theatre Awards 2023.
The UK Theatre Awards are the premier awards for regional theatre, and a highly anticipated annual celebration of outstanding achievements in the nation’s vibrant theatre scene.
BAFTA winner Siobhán McSweeney has been nominated in the Best Performance in a Play for her role as Winnie in Happy Days, the Samuel Beckett play that Landmark Productions brought to our stage this June.
In the same category Wiliam Young is nominated for his role as Lennie in Of Mice and Men, directed by our very own Associate Director Iqbal Khan. This was a Birmingham Rep, Leeds Playhouse and Fiery Angel co-production, which opened in March.
We are also delighted that the wonderful Bryony Corrigan has been nominated in the Best Supporting Performance (in a Musical or Play) for her outstanding role in I, Daniel Blake. This was a Northern Stage, Birmingham Rep, ETT, Oldham Coliseum and tiny dragon Productions production in association with Cardboard Citizens. The production opened in June to rave reviews.
Our Artistic Director, Sean Foley, said:
All at The Rep are thrilled to have received three nominations in the UK Theatre Awards 2023 for our recent work.
These awards have long been regarded as a pinnacle of recognition for artists, productions, and professionals in the theatre industry, and these nominations represent a significant achievement, being the most The Rep has received in the past five years.
They reflect the remarkable accomplishments, talent, and dedication of all our artists and staff, as well as the strength of our national and international producing partnerships. Our aim is that our work is world class, for everyone – these nominations confirm we are delivering exceptional work for audiences in Birmingham and beyond.
This is not just a great day for The Rep but also, we hope, for Birmingham – highlighting, as it does, the great creativity and tenacity of everyone concerned with the arts in this great City.”
