Theatre: Olivier Awards 2022 – Winners!

Here we have the winners of the 2022 Olivier Awards, celebrating the best of West End theatre. Have to admit that considering I had a ticket for Cabaret before Christmas and it was when the performances were being cancelled, makes me even more sad that it has won so many awards.
