As for Best Revival of a Play, the nominees are A Number at The Old Vic, Constellations  at Donmar Warehouse, The Normal Heart at National Theatre, and The Tragedy Of Macbeth at Almeida Theatre.

Life Of Pi, Lolita Chakrabarti’s stage adaptation of the bestselling novel, leads the field for plays with nine nominations, including Best New Play. Also nominated in that category are 2:22 A Ghost Story, Best Of Enemies, and Cruise.
