Kieran Hurley’s BEATS triumphantly scooped the Best New Play award at the Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland (CATS) yesterday (Sunday 10th June) beating off stiff competition from the likes of David Harrower and the National Theatre of Scotland.
The panel said of the show: “Kieran Hurley may still only be in his 20s, but his dramatised observations of the early 1990s free party scene in BEATS are authentically spot-on. Accompanied by DJ Jonny Whoop, Hurley not only performs his interlocking monologues with a mix of subtlety, seriousness and wit, but, shot through with an insight and empathy that is akin to a rave generation version of equally audacious solos by Eric Bogosian and the late Spalding Gray, has written a piece that is fantastic writing on any level.”
