A CITY theatre has come up trumps at a prestigious awards ceremony.

Glasgow's Citizens Theatre tonight picked up six of the ten awards at the 2016 Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland (CATS).

The half dozen gongs were split equally between two shows held at the playhouse - Lanark: A Life in Three Acts and This Restless House.

Lanark, based on Alistair Gray's epic novel, won the Best Design, Best Technical Presentation and Best Male Performance awards.

This Restless House by Zinnie Harris won Best New Play, best director and Best Female Performance gongs.

The 2016 Awards were presented by Still Game star Sanjeev Kohli and actor Daniela Nardini, who will return to the stage in Jumpy later this year.

Now in its 14th year, the awards recognise the top theatrical talent in the country, with today's dazzling ceremony held at the Lyceum theatre in Edinburgh.

The Lyceum picked up the Best Production gong for their version of William Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, while the best production for children award was picked up by Uncanny Valley, from the Borderline and Gaiety Theatres.

The National Theatre of Scotland's production of Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour scooped the Best Music and Sound award, and the CATS Whiskers award was given to Muriel Romanes, who recently stepped down as long-term artistic director of theatre firm Stellar Quines.
