Robert Dawson Scott

Robert Dawson Scott was, for many years, an arts journalist and theatre critic, in which role he founded the Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland or CATS in 2003.

He chose to start writing for the stage, rather than about it, when he was selected for the Traverse 50 programme in 2013. Since then he has had three plays produced: The Great Train Race (Play Pie and a Pint, 2013, restaged by Firebrand in 2015). Assessment (Shows on a Shoestring 2017) and The Electrifying Mr Johnson (Comar/Mull Theatre 2019). He is based in Glasgow.

He is currently working on a site-specific piece centred on Edinburgh' relationship with finance and religion.
