The society is now known as Society of London Theatre (SOLT) and its glittering awards are now the Olivier Awards in honor of a theatrical legend, Sir Laurence Olivier.
The 38th Olivier Awards takes place on Sunday, 13 April at the Royal Opera House, when an incredible year for London theatre will be marked with an evening of stellar performances and celebration. Visit OlivierAwards.com for more information.
