Two new plays celebrating girls join Tonic Theatre’s Platform series

Tonic Theatre has joined forces with Nick Hern Books to create Platform – an online bookshop where you can access scripts that put the stories of girls centre stage. Aimed at addressing gender imbalance in theatre, Platform comprises big-cast plays with predominantly or all-female casts, written specifically for performance by young actors.

As our mission and vision is to celebrate the stories and voices of women and girls we wanted to let you know about Platform and we feel this is an excellent resource for teachers and youth theatres that are looking for plays that have strong roles for girls.

On offer from 9 November will be The Glove Thief by Beth Flintoff and Red by Somalia Eaton.

There are many more titles available to buy individually or special offers for bundles of scripts. Check it out and fill your bookshelves!
