National Youth Music Theatre artistic director Jeremy James Taylor, Lorrie Sheehy from First Look Independent Productions, Richard Lee, director of Alec French Architects and Traverse Theatre’s literary manager Katherine Mendelsohn all picked up the accolades for supporting new work.
David James, chair of the union’s theatre committee, congratulated all the winners at an informal ceremony held at the Old Vic. He said: “So much of what we do is focused on battling the negative, we put this together because we wanted to celebrate something positive.”
