Celebrating the Achievements of Women in Theatre

May Fair Theatre, LondonThe Tonic Awards celebrate the achievements of women who are changing the face of our theatre industry, and the projects and productions that are redefining the role of women in the performing arts.

We created the Awards so that the amazing contributions of women to theatre can be highlighted publicly – not just the doom and gloom stories about under-representation – and so that younger women in particular have visible role models to aspire to.

The inaugural Tonic Awards took place on Wednesday 29 March 2017 at the May Fair Theatre within the May Fair Hotel. It was hosted by broadcaster and journalist Jenni Murray DBE.

The 2017 Awards were generously supported by Boom Ents, Dewynters, JHI, Nick Hern Books and WhatsOnStage, and our headline sponsor White Light.
