Lyric Theatre wins prestigious ‘Theatre of the Year’ at UK Theatre Industry Awards

Congratulations to the Lyric Theatre in Belfast, which won ‘Theatre of the Year’ at The Stage Awards 2023, held in London’s West End at the end of last month. The Stage Awards celebrate the best of the UK theatre industry.

The Lyric Theatre was recognised for its programme, which featured eight-full scale productions, seven of which were new works, as well as for its online ‘Play/Write’ festival of skills development sessions, and its open call for new work. It also received recognition for its work to attract under-represented audiences through LGBT+ productions, and for its extensive education and outreach programme.

Lyric Executive producer, Jimmy Fay, said the Lyric Theatre was “about the people who make the work” and dedicated the award to the venue’s staff, audiences, actors and writers.
