The fosterIAN awards

fosterIAN (fos-tîr’ē-ən) – an award given for excellence in the theatre that I have witnessed.

For a long time, one of my life’s ambitions was to get the word ‘fosterian’ into the lexicon. I always thought it would be an adjective, like Thatcherite or Marxist, but I’ve now come to realise it is actually a noun, and hence we have the fosterIAN awards. 

Awarded annually, you can find all of the winners and nominees below in a searchable table format. An elite club of 12 are currently two-time winners, and nominations-wise, Josefina Gabrielle leads the list with five, Daniel Crossley, Andrew Scott and Imelda Staunton just behind on four.
