The company of The Canary and the Crow has been nominated for three Off West End Theatre Awards, also known as the Offies, following its run at London’s Arcola Theatre.

The whole cast have been nominated for Best Performance Ensemble, while writer and performer Daniel Ward has been nominated for Best Performance Piece

Performer Laurie Jamieson has also been nominated for Best Supporting Performance in a Play.

The Offies were launched in 2011 to help raise the profile and status of independent theatres in London, by giving them greater power to promote their work individually and collectively and to reward the new talent that they nurture.

The awards cover a calendar year and the winners are announced in the spring of the following year.

In January 2020 Daniel Ward won a Writers’ Guild Award for Best Play for Young Audiences for The Canary and the Crow, while the show also won the Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019.
