Productions which have thrilled fans of London theatre breaks like The Heretic, Tribes and Remembrance Day are all in the list for Best Play.
Furthermore, the Ned Sherrin Award for Best Musical will be contested by the likes of Betty Blue Eyes, Crazy for You, Fela! and Matilda.
The winners will be decided by a host of theatre experts, including Sarah Sands, deputy editor of the London Evening Standard, and critics Georgina Brown, Susannah Clapp, Charles Spencer, Libby Purves and Matt Wolf.
