Showcasing the best theatre in London, the annual Olivier Awards with Mastercard are a star-studded affair where the most coveted theatrical accolades are presented – and there’s still chance to see some of this year’s nominated and winning shows for yourself with Official London Theatre.

The visual spectacle Stranger Things: The First Shadow, currently playing at the West End’s Phoenix Theatre, took home awards for Best New Entertainment or Comedy Play and Best Set Design at this year’s Oliviers. Based on the hit Netflix series, this gripping new adventure will take you right back to the beginning of the Stranger Things story – and may hold the key to the end. And until 15 June, see Best Actress nominee Laura Donnelly in the magnificent and moving The Hills Of California, also nominated this year for Best New Play and brought to the stage by multi-award-winning creative powerhouse partnership of writer Jez Butterworth and director Sam Mendes.
