The Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2013 were awarded on Sunday 17 November in a ceremony at the Savoy Hotel. Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear were joint winners in the Best Actor category after judges decided it was impossible to decide between the two Othello stars. Helen Mirren won Best Actress for her performance as reigning monarch Queen Elizabeth II in The Audience.

These were the Winners I backed (a very short and sweet list!):

Best Actor:
Adrian Lester, Othello (National Theatre Olivier)

Best Play:
Chimerica, Lucy Kirkwood (Almeida & Harold Pinter)
