Tonic Platform play Heavy Weather shortlisted for Writers Guild of Great Britain Award
One of the most recently published of Tonic’s Platform plays, Heavy Weather by Lizzie Nunnery was nominated for a 2022 Writers Guild of Great Britain Award for Best Play for Young Audiences.
Although the play didn’t win on the night, it was great to be shortlisted and wonderful that Lizzie could travel down from Liverpool for the awards in London and attend them alongside Tonic’s Director Lucy Kerbel. Heavy Weather is one of Tonic’s Platform plays, written for performance by young people and with a mainly female and gender-neutral cast. It explores one young woman’s response to climate crisis, protest and activism.
