Platform is an initiative from Tonic Theatre in partnership with Nick Hern Books.
Aimed at addressing gender imbalance and inequality in theatre, Platform comprises big-cast plays with predominantly or all-female casts, written specifically for performance by school, college and youth-theatre groups.
Platform was named as Outstanding Drama Initiative at the Music and Drama Education Awards 2021.
