‘One of the most empowering and significant exercises in looking at equality that I have experienced.’
Erica Whyman, RSC Deputy Artistic Director on Tonic’s Advance

Ever wondered how leading women in theatre got to where they are? Now’s your chance to ask them.

Tonic Celebrates is a series of events foregrounding the achievements of inspirational women in theatre. Each event brings together a group of remarkable women, all of whom are leaders in their field, to discuss their careers, work, and successes. The first half of the evening will be chaired by Tonic Theatre’s Director Lucy Kerbel, before the floor will be opened to the audience for questions.

Joining Lucy Kerbel will be actress and writer Dame Harriet Walter (Shakespeare Trilogy, Mary Stuart, Dinner, Arcadia, Macbeth, Three Sisters, The Crown, Downton Abbey, Star Wars:The Force Awakens), award-winning director Marianne Elliott (Angels in America, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Warhorse) and dramaturg Nina Steiger (Senior Dramaturg, National Theatre and formerly Associate Director at Soho Theatre).
