Michael has received a Nomination for Antigonus in the 2016 Oliviers in the category Best Actor in a Supporting Role.

The ceremony will be held at the Royal Opera House on the 3rd April.

Michael Pennington is superb as Antigonus, a model verse-speaker, and his final moments before the Bear takes his life, are extraordinary.
