Tonic has partnered with the National Theatre Bookshop to create Tonic Recommends, a dedicated bookshelf to platform great writing by and about women. Together with leading women in theatre who have been involved with our work, we’ve put together twenty six titles, including some personal recommendations. Squeezing the extraordinary breadth of brilliant work by and about women into just a few metres of shelf space is an impossible task, and this is really just the tip of the iceberg. We hope it expires and exhilarates, and sends people digging further into the wide-world of writing by and about women that’s out there, though not always at the front of the shelf.
You can find the full shelf in the NT bookshop or online here.
