Olivier Awards - 2012 nominations

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Mogadishu, Vivienne Franzmann's hard-hitting debut play about a teacher whose career unravells when she intervenes in a playground fight, is nominated for an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre. Franzmann was herself a teacher until she won the Bruntwood Playwriting Competition with Mogadishu. Her forthcoming play, The Witness, opens at the Royal Court in June.

In other categories, Alecky Blythe and Adam Cork's London Road was nominated for Best New Musical, while nominations for Best Revival included Terence Rattigan's Flare Path at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, Eugene O'Neill's Anna Christie at the Donmar Warehouse, and Much Ado About Nothing starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate at the Wyndham's Theatre.

The awards ceremony takes place at the Royal Opera House on 15 April.
