Our series of new plays for young people to perform which place girls and young women centre stage.

About the series

We don’t think young people should grow up believing that only men can have a voice on stage. So since 2015, Tonic has been commissioning and publishing a range of new plays that redress the balance. Our Platform series, delivered in partnership with leading theatre publishers Nick Hern Books, are scripts written with youth companies in mind, which have casts that feature all or mainly female or gender neutral casts.
