It goes up against the Opera House’s production of Dick Whittington and two other shows hosted by The Lowry – Running Wild and The Toad Knew.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony hosted by comedian Justin Moorhouse on March 9.

Tania Seher Wilson, MSF Partnerships and Collaborative Programme Manager, said: “The festival team are delighted to hear of Under Glass’s nomination for a Manchester Theatre Award. This was a really challenging and beautiful piece that turned human beings into laboratory specimens in glass jars and was one of my personal highlights of the festival.”

Suzy Willson, Artistic Director Clod Ensemble, said: “We are thrilled to be nominated for a Manchester Theatre Award. It was a real pleasure to return to The Lowry with Under Glass and the season of events surrounding it.
“Our work was met with such warmth and generosity by so many people and organisations in the North West – including the brilliant team at Manchester Science Festival – and we are very much looking forward to developing these relationships with another season of work in Autumn 2018.”

Phenomenal experience watching @ClodEnsemble 'Under Glass' at @The_Lowry this afternoon. If you ever get the chance, go and see it. Well done to all the performers and the team. All the best on the rest of your tour.
